Watch: Bastille wash brains in their new ‘Fake It’ video

Bastille by Mike Massaro

Eerie new clip joins ‘Wild World”s latest single.

With ‘Wild World’ fast approaching, Bastille have offered up a new video for ‘Fake It’.

The second album’s second single, it’s joined by a clip that finds an eerie brainwasher taking to the telly-box. In keeping with ‘Wild World”s side-eyed glance at modernity, it’s a dystopian vision of a grey-and-black future - watch it below.

‘Fake It’ links up with ‘Good Grief’ in previewing Bastille’s second album - that first single had a suitably bonkers accompanying video too. Catch up with DIY’s June 2016 issue cover feature with Bastille right here. Their upcoming arena tour dates are below the player. 

‘Wild World’ is out on September 9th, via Virgin / EMI.
