“Overjoyed” by Bastille: from the album Bad Blood

tumblr_inline_myqtjccu5b1r2vcpbI love these guys. This is the best album I’ve listened to, start to finish, in a really long time. And when you add the songs from All This Bad Blood you have enough songs to put these guys on the map permanently for at least the next decade; not unlike the sheer brilliance of the Give Up album by The Postal Service:

 

“Overjoyed” by Bastille

Oh I feel overjoyed
When you listen to my words
I see them sinking in
Oh I see them crawling underneath your skinWords are all we have
We’ll be talking
We’ll be talking
These words are all we have
We’ll be talkingAnd I hear you calling in the dead of night
And I hear you calling in the dead of night

You lean towards despair
Any given opportunity you’re there
But what is there to gain?
When you’re always falling off the fence that way.

Words are all we have
We’ll be talking
We’ll be talking
These words are all we have
We’ll be talking

And I hear you calling in the dead of night
Oh I hear you calling in the dead of night

Ooooooh

And I hear you calling in the dead of night
Oh I hear you calling in the dead of night
And I hear you calling in the dead of night
Oh I hear you calling in the dead of night

Ooooooh

Oh I feel overjoyed
When you listen to my words
