Cementing their place within today’s dance music dignitaries, Clean Bandit are currently sitting happy at the UK #1 spot with ‘Rather Be’ featuring Jess Glyne. If you want to purchase this record, save your pennies and pre-order the album instead – you’ll get it for free!
‘Heart On Fire’, at its core, is an incredibly simple record with a percussive soundboard that chatters around the bend creating an unforgettable melody out of basic oscillation. Carried by the vocals and baked with fluty morsels, the whole thing is buffeted by structured minimalism. Just a good pop record I hear you say? Well, yes – it serves its purpose until you realise that you’ve been listening to the same verse and chorus four times without any thought of reaching for the Pause button.
In truth, ‘Heart On Fire’ is somewhere between old-school eski, UK funky and garage with the pop-auteurs ability to marry this polygamist relationship into a commercially viable record.
