VMvsic: Bastille – Laura Palmer


[dropcap]S[/dropcap]ure, we’re doubling up pretty fast on Bastille, the London band that got VMvsic treatment just last week for their castle-humming indie hit “Pompeii.” Now Dan Smith returns with the Mumford-y follow-up single called “Laura Palmer,” lifting the fictional name of Twin Peaks’ most famous murder victim. The David Lynch-ian video finds Smith being abducted, and combines raw footage, all-terrain videos, and one pissed off pup. Someone get the singer of the Calling on the phone; this is how you publicize getting pinched off the street.
