Named after frontman Dan Smith’s birthday (which falls on Bastille Day), London’s Bastille blew up after the release of 2013’s “Pompeii.” Now, four years later, the band’s bigger than ever, and their latest release, 2016’s Wild World, is proof of that.

The band’s currently on tour in support of the album, and they sat down to chat with us about what keeps them up at night on the tour bus: TV.

They gave us a few recommendations, and because Wild World was intended to feel like a soundtrack, we had to know: Which song off the album would be the soundtrack to their lives? Find out below!

Check back next week for the second half of our two-part interview with Bastille!
