Capital XTRA In The Morning With Jez Welham 6am - 10am
The Cambridge Uni graduates are getting nationwide attention ahead of the release of their big track 'Rather Be'. Find out everything you need to know about the up and coming quartet.
The band is comprised of (from left to right) Grace Chatto (Strings), Luke Patterson (drums), Milan Neil Amin-Smith (strings) and Jack Patterson (bass, sax, decks).
All of their musical talents combined create a kind of electro-classical-garage sound that's unusual, but works.
Jack, Grace and Milan all met as undergrads at Cambridge uni, Grace was leading a string quarter with Milan and Patterson would record the music and remix them with drum beats. Picture: Instagram
Although Jack, Grace and Milan met at Cambridge uni, Luke didn't come along until a little later when his brother Jack introduced him to the band.
It peaked at number 100 on the UK singles chart.
The model was at Cambridge at the same time as the band were, and she appeared in their video 'UK Shanty,' where she's shown swimming in the sea. Picture: Instagram
North London-based duo Gorgon City (a.k.a. Foamo and RackNRuin) collaborated with their Black Butter label mates Clean Bandit and singer Nikki B on ‘Intentions’. The garage-house track is a big tune.
Just before London Grammar and Sam Smith took to the stage Clean Bandit were lucky enough to perform a half an hour slot at the UK's biggest music festival. Picture: PA
The band also have a production company and make their own videos, filming and editing the whole thing themselves.
E.g, the ice skating man in the video to 'Dust Clears' is a reference for a painting by Henry Raeburn called 'The Sating Minister'. Picture: Instagram
Visiting Manchester, Glasgow, Leeds, Nottingham, Bristol and London. They've also picked up support slots with SBTRKT and Rudimental. Picture: Instagram
The track, featuring vocals from Jess Glynne, will be the third single off their studio album. It's an upbeat dance track that's getting attention nationwide.
It was only put on YouTube one month ago but the track - and its creative video - have blown up.
So get up and go listen to it! Picture: Instagram
