Last year, a friend of mine introduced me to a track from Clean Bandit. They’re a British group, which according to their Wikipedia, falls under Deep House and Baroque Pop genre. While I don’t care much about genres and such (to me anything suits my ears do!), I fell in love with them instantly after hearing Dust Clears.
Here’s why :
1. The tune.
It has a very catchy, cheery tune, with a lot of unique sounds – a good combination of bass, some sort of piano, and violin too! Basically the kind of tune that will make you move your head left and right, hahaha.
2. The lyrics.
With such cheery tune, you would expect to hear meaningless, repetitive lyrics – just like most top 40 songs nowadays. But no, Dust Clears actually has a very deep lyrics (at least to me!). It started with “Imagine if the life that you thought you shared wasn’t really there … ” and also this bit (!!) “Imagine if the friend that you thought you knew wasn’t really true … ” Those kind of lyrics, especially when listened near your period time can really make you have deep thinking, right? :O
Anyway, lately I came across their new single, “Rather Be” feat Jess Glyne. Another instant favorite! Have a listen first :
Don’t you agree that this one’s another hit? It was all over UK radio stations last month. Pretty sure that it’s big in clubs there, too… hahaha. Again, it has a marvelous combination of catchy tune and sweet lyrics. Who can resist this : “It’s easy being with you, sacred simplicity. As long as we’re together, there’s no place I rather be… “
So yeah, I’m currently listening to Clean Bandit, a lot! I think you should too 🙂
