Day 106 Bastille feat. Ella – No Angels (The xx Vs TLC)

WOW, this really has the capability to knock you back a few paces. Featured on Bastille’s pre-album mixtape, ‘In Other People’s Heartbreak Part 2’, No Angels is an innovative and stirring combination of The xx’s Angels and TLC’s No Scrubs, a crazy yet wonderful choice in itself. Featuring lead singer Dan’s vocals and an artist simply named Ella, No Angels is a chilled and thoughtful jam that shines beautifully throughout. The stunning string section / Angels guitar line that constantly underpins this track invites an infectious beat upon it that’s core strength is really special. Dan’s soft vocals vs. Ella’s harsh and powerful tones also highlight this wonderful collaboration of genre and age crossing music in a vocally and lyrically intense way. But perhaps the best thing about the entire thing is that the mixtape (featuring this song) is completely free to download online. Click here to do so.
