Album Review - Clean Bandit - New Eyes (Atlantic Records)
Graham Clark, Features Writer
British group Clean Bandit are one of the biggest acts to come out of the UK this year, their single Rather Be has been Number 1 in the UK and all across Europe. Their next single, Extraordinary looks set to replicate that success.

The group are unusual as they mix dance grooves with a house twist with violins and lush orchestration. No wonder their debut album is called New Eyes as listening to the album it is certainly a mixed bag with a fresh approach.

The album opens up with Mozart's House which sounds like Erasure mixed with the Art of Noise with a classical twist.

Dust Clears sounds like a leftover track off the last Daft Punk album whilst the track Come Over brings some Jamaican sunshine to the party and it sounds like a future single.

Heart on Fire sounds great on a big sound system, at the club or in the car. These tracks cross so many boundaries.

They cover so many bases and there is no other act doing what they do at the moment.

They seem to have a knack of writing melodies that stick in your head and this album is full of tracks like that.

They will probably walk it at next years BRIT awards but for now this is a worthy purchase. The album is released Monday 2 June.

I give the album 4 out of 5
