Words: Saam Das
I'm massively behind on the Clean Bandit game, despite a recommendation from Raman FG. But I did check out their new effort, and although I'm told it's a slightly different sound than usual, I found it to be most pleasant to my ears. 'Rather Be' features the powerful vocals of Jess Glynne, accompanied by a driving beat and striking strings. All round, bit of a banger.
Rising talent Glynne isn't the only collaborator on this new Clean Bandit track, with Jimmy Napes contributing to the songwriting, following work with Disclosure. It's a fruitful collaboration, and one matched by a similarly impressive video - a deliriously Japanese offering that you can watch below.
