Clean Ban­dit don’t want a reg­u­lar singer

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Clean Ban­dit don’t want a reg­u­lar singer be­cause they don’t want their songs to “sound the same”. The ‘Rock­abye’ hit­mak­ers have had Jess Glynne, Anne-Marie and Louisa John­son on lead vo­cals of some of their big­gest hits and wouldn’t want to re­cruit the same voice for ev­ery song in fear of los­ing cre­ative free­dom. Asked if one of the band could be­come the singer, band mem­ber Jack Pat­ter­son told BANG Show­biz: “It would make it eas­ier, for sure. To be­gin with we had a per­ma­nent singer, it would make it eas­ier but then I think it would limit us be­cause then all our songs would sound the same. And cel­list Grace Chatto added: “To work with dif­fer­ent singers gives us cre­ative free­dom be­cause we can ex­per­i­ment with dif­fer­ent sounds on ev­ery song.” Clean Ban­dit’s next record could be with us early next year, but Grace says they are still des­per­ately search­ing for singers to con­trib­ute. Asked when fans can ex­pect the ea­gerly-an­tic­i­pated fol­low-up to 2014’s ‘New Eyes’, Grace said: “Next year, that’s start­ing to be more re­al­is­tic. Early next year we think, but we do need to find a lot of singers!” Last week, Busted rocked 30,000 fans at the MTV Crashes Ply­mouth live mu­sic event. High­lights of their per­for­mance and sets from Charli XCX, Louisa John­son, Clean Ban­dit and Sigma can be seen on MTV Mu­sic on Fri­day 11 Au­gust at 8pm.
