Clean Bandit are a Grammy Award winning British electronic music group. The band consists of Grace Chatto, and brothers Jack and Luke Patterson. The group was formed in Cambridge in 2008. The band’s name, Clean Bandit, comes from a translation of a Russian phrase. The meaning is similar to the English phrase “complete bastard”, though Patterson later stated that it is actually a more affectionate term similar to “utter rascal”. They have recently released a new song called I miss you featuring Julia Michaels.
They all wrote this song together. The piano opens the track with Michaels pouring her heart out over an ex still in her heart. Julia sings the chorus on the orchestral strings and tropical beats. Its a beautiful mix of melancholy and melody in Michaels’ hands. The video, which they directed themselves, features the performers in all red ensembles walking around the desert. Luke has the snare drum, Jack on the upright piano and Grace plays the cello.
Julia Michaels is no stranger to the industry. The 23-year-old singer has written tracks for Demi Lovato, Fifth Harmony, and more top stars. She officially launched her solo career as a performer at the start of 2017.
Grace Chatto spoke to Billboard that the group bonded over the filming process.
“Making the video in the desert outside of Los Angeles was very special. We got to know each other better in the blazing heat. We experimented with special effects and train tracks.”
She also explained that the song is about unbelievable pain of breaking up with someone you love. check out the video;
