Single of the Week - Rather Be by Clean Bandit (feat Jess Glynne)

This is a brand new song, only just released - 19th Jan 2014 i.e this week! Already, I am absolutely addicted to it.

Clean Bandit are a British group, and this is apparently their third single. I must confess that I have never actually heard of them before this single though. They have an album coming up on which this single and the others will feature, being their debut album.

I stumbled upon this driving back from the gym, and was humming it to myself straight away. It sticks in your head. I can see this being huge in the summer - it has that kind of beach vibe/gym workout beat. That said, its also perfect for a gloomy, grey, bleak January day, such as today!

Its an uplifting number, and quite housy and cool. Jess Glynne's vocals are beautiful, and remind me a little bit of other artists - one being a bit obscure - DB Boulevard, Another Point of View! another being a little Adele like in places. But enough of that.

However, this is a stand out for one very important reason - this is house music with strings! Now, I'm a bit of a lover of the old strings, and when done as well as here, it is nothing short of majestic. The strings kick in, and its hold on to your seats time. This is a style I've not encountered before - beautiful strings and fast beats of house music. Exciting stuff, and sure to be a chart topper.

Go take a listen, and let me know what you think.Enjoy x
