By now, everyone knows Bastille's song "Pompeii." But chances are, you haven't heard it like this.

In this new video, Bastille performs their hit with an added dramatic flair–a large sting section in the background. The performance took place in the famous Captiol Records building in Los Angeles.

Bastille frontman Dan Smith told Rolling Stone that because they write and produce songs at the same time, "it's nice to take the songs out of their normal context and have fun with them." Smith added, "I'm obsessed with film scores, so to play such a cinematic version of 'Pompeii' with musicians who soundtrack Hollywood films on a daily basis was an amazing experience."
