I can’t stop thinking about the Bas boys all sitting around with the Wild World colouring book: Kyle colouring everything in with mismatching bright colours, Will getting cross with Woody because ‘why can’t you just colour inside the lines?’ whilst Charlie happily finishes the join-the-dots, and Dan can’t even decide what colours to use
@bastilledan being the energizer bunny at the Fillmore in Philadelphia. I need to know how he maintains this energy in every single show. Is it adrenaline? Red Bull? A Four Loco? Haha. Maybe, it’s all that hot sauce. Every gig is like the most talented, joyous, and animated aerobics class you’ll ever attend. 😂 and he is a great dancer. Lots of rhythm. Certainly improving show after show. 😊 #everybodygetdown
There’s so much complexity to it in the way that he emphasizes certain syllables and stretches notes. All the while, he manages to convey vulnerability and melancholy in his soft and low almost mumbles, the breathy, raspy exasperations of passion with a certain seductiveness and sultriness (which is why I love Skulls and Fake It), and the great conviction in his piercing high notes, of which he stands on his tiptoes to reach, almost like a hymn or Gospel. I swear. It’s beyond otherworldly.
