One of this year’s biggest UK breakthrough acts Clean Bandit have today revealed the official video to their forthcoming summer single ‘Come Over’, which will be released on August 11 through Atlantic Records.
Shot across various locations (the Arctic Desert of Svalbard near the North Pole, Morocco and the Sahara Desert), Clean Bandit have once again self-produced, shot and directed their own music video in a truly unique way. From galloping horses alongside quad bikes in the Sahara, to riding huskie sleds across the mountains of Norway, there’s no stopping Clean Bandit when it comes to their distinctive vision and creativity. The track, which features vocals from the band’s very own Grace Chatto and rising British Dancehall star Stylo G, is already playlisted at Radio 1, Capital Xtra and 1Xtra and is set to soundtrack summer 2014.
Cellist Grace Chatto speaks about the video – “We shot the video in two contrasting locations - Svalbard, a Norwegian island cluster in the Arctic Circle and Marrakech in Morocco. We wanted the contrast for the video of switching between the warm and cold climates, but also for the locations to have a unique identity about them as well. Svalbard has this incredible arctic desert, whilst Marrakech is the complete opposite with the Sahara and the Medina. It was incredible shooting the video with Stylo. He is this incredible force of energy, has this amazing charisma and is willing to do anything! He even took extra riding lessons especially for the video!"
The band released their UK Top 3 debut album New Eyes in June and will head out on a UK headline tour this October/November, taking in a Brixton Academy show.
