LISTEN:Dan Smith of Bastille

by Jay Morris

Talked with Dan Smith of Bastille about  how the album Bad Blood came together "in a tiny little studio in London"  it was pieced together in between gigs. Smith added it " It is quite a home grown record".

Writing with others on this project has always felt quite strange to me when asked about how Smith writes " I've always written by myself. Even on tour " When we have time off I still find myself, going off to my room and recording stuff." "In the geekiest possible way it is a hobby or whatever." 

What was Smith's first album  he ever bought? Who are his influences? Does he consider himself a rock star? What is his biggest fear?  Listen to the entire interview:
