Marshmello and Bastille made an appearance together on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge, delivering stripped-down performances of their smash hit “Happier” and a cover of Benny Blanco’s “Eastside.”
Their rendition of “Happier”—a song about letting go of someone—was made all the more emotionally charged thanks to the addition of a string quartet.
The musicians also served up a cover of Benny Blanco’s single, “Eastside.” Bastille frontman Dan Smith injected signature soulful runs throughout the cover, playfully adding lines from Nelly’s 2000 hit “Ride Wit Me” to the chorus.
Check out both performances below.
