Clean Ban­dit fea­tur­ing Marina And The Di­a­monds Dis­con­nect

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Music -

CLEAN Ban­dit has col­lab­o­rated with plenty of big names be­fore, but one can ar­gue that this one with Marina Lam­brini Dia­man­dis, bet­ter known as Marin And The Di­a­monds, is one of its best ef­forts.

First per­formed at the 2015 Coachella fes­ti­val, the song was only re­leased of­fi­cially as a sin­gle last wee

Though the stu­dio ver­sion does sound a lot more pol­ished than the live ver­sion, one con­stant is Dia­man­sis’ heart­felt vo­cal de­liv­ery, which grabs you from the very first verse and never lets go.

With lyrics about be­ing ad­dicted to con­nec­tiv­ity – “Look­ing at the screen/Glow­ing in the dark/I just wanna dream/But I can’t seem to switch off” – it’s a song that hooks you in from the start, and keeps yo lis­ten­ing just to hear the en­tire mes­sage at the end of the tone. – Michael Cheang
