Music Monday – Clean Bandit

Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend, and enjoyed a little bit of sunshine wherever it is that you’ve been! I’m kicking things off this week with a band from Cambridge who mix modern electronic with classical music, known as Clean Bandit. If you were wondering, their name is an oddly translated Russian affectionate insult. Though what they lack in strength of story behind their monicker, they more than make up for in tunes! After forming in 2009, their break through finally came in 2014 with their debut album New Eyes. I’ve picked out their track Rather Be, a smash hit last year that earned the band multiple Brit Award nominations and a Grammy. Tracks don’t get much more bouncy and upbeat than this, and I love the way they mix together electronic beats and blips with a cello, violin and piano. Check out the track below and let me know in the comments section what you’ve been listening to lately. Have a great week!
