Bastille was originally a solo project by singer/songwriter Dan Smith before it eventually turned into a four-piece band. The group consisted of Dan on the lead with his three other pals Chris Wood, William Farquarson and Kyle Simmons.
They made their debut in June 2010 with their limited edition 7"/45 rpm single featuring the two tracks "Flaws" and "Icarus". They received a great amount of attention from media and fans on YouTube and MySpace and eventually landing a deal with Virgin Records.
