We first came across the self described ‘classico-electronical’ collective Clean Bandit back when their video for A&E surfaced online. That was October 2012 and they’ve since gone on to receive an enviable amount of support from the new music world, including being playlisted here at Amazing Radio, and of course a wealth of support from Radio 1 lately too.
You can stream A&E over at their amazingtunes.com profile, and check out a host of their label-mates from the Black Butter Records profile. In even better news, you can see them on tour across the U.K. as support for Disclosure.
Working with a range of different vocalists, Clean Bandit have found a niche in making fun, upbeat yet intricate synth laden pop. The string section adds a welcome depth of sound to each track, and unlike many, each note you hear on record is individually recreated on stage. Look out for latest release Mozart’s House, and be sure to get along to Heaven tonight in London to see them. Tune in to the Gig Guide on Amazing Afternoons from 4pm for full information and the rest of the tour dates.
