Clean Bandit are relatively new on the British music scene, having initially formed in 2006 and first appearing on the UK top 40 only last year with their single ‘Mozart’s House’; a curious electronic mix with classical elements. On occasion they also like to throw some deep-house into their music. Frankly, I think it works brilliantly from what I’ve heard of them so far.
This single, Rather Be, achieved even more success when it hit the number one spot of the UK charts back in January of this year. I think it’s great, not least because it’s set in Japan (a country I have a strange affection for) and has lovely vocals provided by British singer-songwriter Jess Glynne. There is a general good feeling that resonates from this song that one can’t help but associate with summer. Have a listen and see if you agree!
Oh, wait a minute.
You see, I was sitting here writing up this synopsis when I thought what a shame it would be if I only gave you the latter having also promoted one of their former singles. Rather Be is a very nice song, granted, but Mozart’s House is something else entirely. I couldn’t just assume you’d heard it as well, so this Tunesday I have decided to make a little exception and give you two songs for the price of one. Sssh, don’t tell the boss...
