Thoughts on Bastille’s “Glory” Video …

So now that the “Glory” video has been out for a bit and I’ve had a chance to digest it all including reading everyone’s theory’s and so on and so forth. I had gone back and forth deciding on whether or not I should put forth my thoughts or not. But I decided to give it a go …

So first off to me what I define as “Art”. Is something that can evoke or elicit an emotion from within you. Whether it’s good or bad. That’s something this video definitely did. It was shot beautiful and has a wonderful cinematic quality to it. With the storyline carefully played out so the viewer could make it’s own mind up on certain things. All of this done within a five minute mark. Now to my opinion on the storyline itself. Well I don’t think either characters are dead. In fact it wasn’t something I consider until I started reading other people thoughts, theory’s and summations online. I never once considered that. But once again that goes back to the how great the storyline was written where it left much of it up for your interpretation. As for the relationship of the couple. I tended to lean towards a friendship that could be more or turn into something more. But from within the scope of the video did it truly matter? They obviously cared deeply for each other. So that’s what really mattered. I also loved the hints and nods to the Bastille videos of the past like Bad Blood. To me the video overall expressed the viewpoint of enjoying your friendships and relationships,etc that you have now because time flies and they could be gone forever. It was told in a beautifully cinematic way of a summer road trip between two friends whilst interpolating those great Bastille quirks we have come to know and love. I say bravo to another great Bastille video. And maybe just maybe, one filled with hope and yes of course Glory so much Glory. 

Much love always! 🙂 xx
