Song of the week
Clean Bandit featuring Marina And The Diamonds Disconnect
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
