You can tell the holidays are truly upon us when a). artists are re-releasing their albums with newly-added tracks, and b.) they can’t even be bothered to show up to their own video shoots. And so here we have the black and white visual for “The Draw,” a cut off buzz band Bastille‘s All This Bad Blood repackage (not yet available in the US) of Bad Blood. It gives us flashes of everyday life —a video arcade, a solitary park bench, a church, a cemetery — while still managing to live up to the song’s title and draw us in.
The clip arrives the same week Bastille’s prior single, “Of The Night” — a gloriously moody mashup of ’90s dance jams “Rhythm Is A Dancer” by Snap! and “The Rhythm Of The Night” by Corona — has debuted at #2 on the UK chart.
Watch “The Draw” above.
