Clean Bandit & Jess Glynne Re-Team For ‘Real Love’

Clean Bandit conquered the globe earlier this year with “Rather Be,” a tune with instantly recognizable strings that featured vocals from Jess Glynne.

The two acts have joined forces once again for “Real Love.” Containing piano keys and a little bit of that 2-step kick, “Real Love” packs more punch than “Rather Be.” That could also be thanks to the pulsating house thump that fleshes out the track and the accents of 8-bit video game acoustics that pepper the chorus.

And Glynne’s vocals are in step with the melody, hitting her trademark highs as she keeps pace with the pop radio-ready track. But will “Real Love” top the success of “Rather Be”? Let us know your thoughts.

Clean Bandit Perform on ‘Good Morning America’

Clean Bandit

One of dance’s catchiest tunes got some national exposure on Wednesday when Clean Bandit performed “Rather Be” on Good Morning America.


Though the song’s vocalist Jess Glynne was out, Elisabeth Troy stepped in to help the group’s lone female member, Grace Chatto, sing the song that peaked at No. 2 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart.

With some mean string playing and that hypnotic melody, the group showcased their talent for a few brief minutes before the performance cuts to a commercial break.

—Ugh … what a bummer. Still, it’s worth checking out yet another dance act hitting Good Morning America. If the show keeps brining folks like Clean Bandit on to perform, this will be our show of choice — if we’re up that early, of course.
