Artiestinformatie

Land   Verenigd Koninkrijk

Jack en Like Patterson, Grace Chatto en Milan Neil Amin-Smith leren elkaar kennen op de universiteit van Cambridge. Het drietal schrijft dan al het nummer Mozart’s House. In thuisland Groot Brittannië debuteert de band Clean Bandit met de single A+E. In het voorjaar van 2013 brengen ze Mozart’s House tot de top 20 van de Britse hitlijst.

In januari van 2014 verschijnt hun vierde single, Rather Be, waarop ook Jess Glynne te horen is. Het nummer komt binnen op de eerste plaats van de Britse hitlijst en staat daar vier weken genoteerd. De single wordt door 538 uitgeroepen tot Alarmschijf en bereikt ook in de Media Markt Top 40 de eerste plek. Het nummer groeit uit tot de grootste Top 40-hit van 2014. Later dat jaar verschijnt hun debuutalbum, waarvan Extraordinary (met Sharna Bass) ook Alarmschijf wordt. Real Love, opnieuw met Jess Glynne, en Stronger blijven daarna steken in de Tipparade.

Het tweede album van Clean Bandit moet in 2016 verschijnen. Tears verschijnt in mei als voorloper van dat album, waarop X Factor-winnares Louisa Johnson de vocalen voor haar rekening neemt. In oktober van dat jaar maakt Neil bekend de groep te gaan verlaten. Rockabye, met daarop ook Sean Paul en Anne-Marie, werd door Radio 538 uitgeroepen tot Alarmschijf. In december wordt het hun tweede nummer 1-hit in de Top 40.

In 2017 weten ze Zara Larrson te strikken voor hun nieuwe single, Symphony, die op 17 maart verschijnt en door Radio 538 wordt uitgeroepen tot Alarmschijf. Die track wordt hun derde top 3-hit in ons land en wordt in oktober opgevolgd door een samenwerking met Julia Michaels, I Miss You.


Songtekst

Call it love and devotion
Call it a mom's adoration
Foundation
A special bond of creation, ha
For all the single moms out there
Going through frustration
Clean Bandit, Sean da Paul
Anne-Marie, sing, make them hear

She works the nights
By the water
She's gonna stress, so far away
From her father's daughter
She just wants a life
For her baby
All on her own, no one will come
She's got to save him (Daily struggle)

She tells him: ooh, love
No one's ever gonna hurt you, love
I'm gonna give you all of my love
Nobody matters like you (Stay out there, stay out there)
She tells him: your life
Ain't gon' be nothing like my life
You're gonna grow and have a good life
I'm gonna do what I've got to do (Stay out there, stay out there)

So, rock-a-bye baby, rock-a-bye
I'm gonna rock you
Rock-a-bye baby, don't you cry
Somebody's got you
Rock-a-bye baby, rock-a-bye
I'm gonna rock you
Rock-a-bye baby, don't you cry

Rock-a-bye
No (Rock-a-bye, rock-a-rock-a-rock-a-bye)
Rock-a-bye
Yeah (Rock-a-bye, rock-a-rock-a-rock-a-bye)

Single mama, you doing out there
Facing the hard life, without no fear (Yeah)
Just so you know that you really care
Cause any obstacle come, you're well prepared (Oh no)
And no mama, you never shed tear
Cause you have to shed things year after year
And you give the youth love beyond compare (Yeah)
You find his school fee and the bus fare (Yeah)

Mmm, Marie, the paps' disappear
In the round back, can't find him nowhere
Steadily you work flow, everything you know
Say you nuh stop the time, no time fi a jear

Now she got a six-year-old
Trying to keep him warm
Trying to keep out the cold
When he looks in her eyes
He don't know he is safe

When she says: ooh, love
No one's ever gonna hurt you, love
I'm gonna give you all of my love
Nobody matters like you

So, rock-a-bye baby, rock-a-bye
I'm gonna rock you
Rock-a-bye baby, don't you cry
Somebody's got you
Rock-a-bye baby, rock-a-bye
I'm gonna rock you
Rock-a-bye baby, don't you cry (Badda-bang-bang-bang, alright then)

Rock-a-bye
No (Rock-a-bye, rock-a-rock-a-rock-a-bye)
Rock-a-bye
Yeah (Rock-a-bye, rock-a-rock-a-rock-a-bye)

Rock-a-bye, don't bother cry
Lift up your head, lift it up to the sky, y'all
Rock-a-bye, don't bother cry
Angels surround you, just dry your eye

Now she got a six-year-old
Trying to keep him warm
Trying to keep out the cold
When he looks in her eyes
He don't know he is safe
When she says

She tells him: ooh, love
No one's ever gonna hurt you, love
I'm gonna give you all of my love
Nobody matters like you (Stay out there, stay out there)
She tells him: your life
Ain't gon' be nothing like my life
You're gonna grow and have a good life
I'm gonna do what I've got to do, yeah

So, rock-a-bye baby, rock-a-bye (Rock-a-bye, rock-a-rock-a-rock-a-bye)
I'm gonna rock you
Rock-a-bye baby, don't you cry (Rock-a-bye, rock-a-rock-a-rock-a-bye)
Somebody's got you
Rock-a-bye baby, rock-a-bye (Rock-a-bye, rock-a-rock-a-rock-a-bye)
I'm gonna rock you
Rock-a-bye baby, don't you cry (Badda-bang-bang-bang, alright then)

Rock-a-bye
Rock-a-bye, don't bother cry
Lift up your head, lift it up to the sky, y'all (Rock-a-bye)
Rock-a-bye, don't bother cry
Angels surround you, just dry your eye (Rock-a-bye)
Rock-a-bye, don't bother cry
Lift up your head, lift it up to the sky, y'all (Rock-a-bye)
Rock-a-bye, don't bother cry
Angels surround you, just dry your eye
