Big song: Clean Bandit - Rather Be

Last time we met Clean Bandit, it was with Mozart's House, a song 100% as terrible as the title made it sound. Mixing techno beats with Mozart's String Quartet No. 21 it was only a "c'mon everybody" short of Jive Bunny Does Hooked On Classics.

So it's a pleasant surprise to discover the quartet's new single is an utter corker. Yes, they're still banging on about "electric chamber music" but Rather Be (co-written by Jimmy Napes, who helped Disclosure come up with Latch) uses the strings to enhance and counterpoint the melody, provided by up-and-comer Jess Glynne.

Zane Lowe chose it as the Hottest Record In The World on Wednesday night. And if you're seduced by its skipping, soaring structure, it's out now on "the iTunes".
