Formed in 2009 after running club nights together (booking the likes of James Blake and Joy Orbison), Clean Bandit’s extensive single catalogue has continued to showcase the band’s much-loved musical diversity alongside their inimitable self-directed music videos. Their Atlantic Records releases - ‘Dust Clears’, ‘Come Over’, ‘Extraordinary’, ‘Real Love’ (another Jess Glynne collaboration, charting at #2 in the UK, with over 650,000 copies sold to date) and ‘Stronger’ – have all firmly solidified why they outsold One Direction with global singles sales in 2014! Prior to their Atlantic signing, Clean Bandit released their debut single ‘A+E’ on seminal London label Black Butter, following-up with the supreme ‘Mozart’s House’, creating a wealth of blog interest, and in turn, igniting colossal radio support both sides of the pond. The creative force and producer of the band, Jack Patterson, has also been recognised as one of the most in-demand UK songwriters/producers in recent times. Last year, Jack took home two Ivor Novello Awards for ‘PRS Music Most Performed Work’ and ‘Best Contemporary Song’ with ‘Rather Be’ and he was once again acknowledged at this year’s ceremony with another nomination for ‘PRS Music Most Performed Work’ after producing and co-writing Jess Glynne’s hit single ‘Hold My Hand’: accumulating all streams across Clean Bandit’s catalogue so far and ‘Hold My Hand’, Jack’s total streams as a songwriter exceed 1 BILLION!
Clean Bandit, who released their debut album New Eyes in 2014, have sold over 13 million singles and 1.6 million albums worldwide, won a Grammy, have been nominated for 2 x BRIT/Billboard Music Awards and 1 x BBC Music Award, featured on the Band Aid 30 single, performed alongside the Philharmonic Orchestra for BBC Radio 1, sold out London’s Alexandra Palace and more!
The trio are currently in the studio recording their second studio album, set for a 2017 release.
