Bastille – A biography
U.K. band Bastille made its debut in 2013 with the album Bad Blood, which entered the U.K. album chart at No. 1. It has since sold more than four million albums worldwide alongside 11 million singles. The global hit “Pompeii” was certified 5x Platinum in the U.S., where it topped Billboard’s Alternative Songs, Hot Rock Songs, Adult Alternative Songs and Dance Club Songs charts. The singles “Bad Blood” and “Flaws” were certified Gold. Bastille won a BRIT Award for British Breakthrough Act and received two GRAMMY® nominations and two American Music Awards nominations.
Rolling Stone hailed Bastille as “Brit pop’s new crown princes” upon the release of the band’s second album, Wild World, which retained the vivid, filmic songwriting of its predecessor, but pushed the band’s unique sound in new directions. In the U.K., Wild World debuted at No. 1 on the album chart and the first single, “Good Grief,” topped Apple Music’s Hot Tracks chart and the Shazam chart. The band returns to the road with the extensive “Wild, Wild World Tour.” Founded by Dan Smith (vocalist/songwriter), Bastille’s line-up is completed by Chris Wood (drums), Will Farquarson (guitar) and Kyle Simmons (keyboards).
Mondo Cozmo is an American singer-songwriter based out of East Los Angeles, CA. Working influences ranging from The Verve, Primal Scream, Beck, Beastie Boys and Bob Dylan in a contempt fusion of beats, guitars and attitude.
In the Spring of 2016 multiple Los Angeles radio stations including KCRW ‘Morning Becomes Eclectic,’ 98.7, 88.5, KROQ, Zane Lowe and NPR, started playing the demos which led to a record deal with Republic Records which was signed in a Mexican restaurant in Burbank. Upon hearing the songs Spike Stent demanded to mix the record. Anna Faris (Mom, The Dictator, Lost in Translation) stared in the first video “Hold on to Me” which was shot documentary style in a retirement facility in Santa Monica, CA. That same week a second video was shot starring Paz De La Huerta for “Higher,” the video was originally shot for “Sixes and Sevens” but was changed after Mondo saw the footage leading him to write the song “Higher” for De La Huerta.
His current single “Shine” is currently rising fast at radio and has been a message of hope in today’s troubled times. Look out for more music and a full length album coming soon.
