Clean Bandit were one of the biggest breakthrough successes in the UK and Europe in 2014 and the story is quickly replicating itself in the US and around the world. Their global hit single ‘Rather Be’, which was the biggest-selling single by a UK act in 2014, hit #1 on the iTunes single chart in over 25 countries upon release in June and has now achieved triple platinum certification in the UK, as well as double platinum sales in the US. This helped contribute to a total of 11 million single sales worldwide in 2014 on all releases more than any other British act, including One Direction. Furthermore, ‘Rather Be’ spent a staggering eight weeks at #1 on the global Spotify chart, peaking at #1 on Shazam in the US, and has since become the most Shazammed track in history of the service, with over 15 billion tags!
The band released their UK top 3 album New Eyes in June 2014 and as well as the international chart success of Rather Be, Clean Bandit have also secured top 5 releases with the singles ‘Extraordinary’ (#5 UK singles chart), ‘Real Love’ (#2 UK singles chart & official German chart; Platinum UK singles sales certification) and ‘Stronger’ (#4 UK singles chart).
Tears ft. Louisa Johnson was the first single to be released from the band’s upcoming second album. Released through Atlantic in 2016, the track reached #5 in the UK singles chart and paved the way for what is certain to be yet another string of successful hits.
Clean Bandit are: Jack Patterson (bass/sax/deck), Luke Patterson (drums) and Grace Chatto (cello/key/synth).
