BEST NEW VIDEOS: BASTILLE "TORN APART (BASTILLE VS GRADES)"
Bastille is back with another banging mixtape, VS (Other People's Heartache Pt. III), and it comes complete with a stunning new video for its lead single, "Torn Apart (Bastille vs Grades)."
Directed by Keith Schofield, the video for "Torn Apart (Bastille vs Grades)" is inspiring, funny, and kinda creepy. This video, like everything, is about love. It opens with a host of different people of various backgrounds listing off cliches about love. Then things stop acting like a Gap and become something else entirely. There's a lot of dancing, shapeshifting, and odd visuals that all seem to recall the complex emotions that go along with love. There's even a three-penis'd alien! Ultimately, there are a whole lot of bodies in this video that people normally wouldn't be associated with beauty or music videos, which is a very cool thing.
And if the promise of some out-there alien sex doesn't get you to watch this video, I don't know what will.
BASTILLE TORN APART (BASTILLE VS GRADES)
