Clean Bandit 是一支在2009年成立于英国剑桥的四人乐队，乐队成员之间的关系复杂却有趣：其中两名是兄弟，两名是青梅竹马，以及两名曾经是情侣。CB以其融合了古典、电音、流行等的独一无二音乐风格，成为了2014年英国最多元、最著名的创新乐团。
Formed in 2009 in Cambridge, Clean Bandit, the quartet formed of two interlocking pairs – mixed between two brothers, two childhood friends and a couple, have become of 2014’s biggest and diverse UK breakthrough stars, interlocking a whole host of genres from classical strings to pumping electronic beats, creating an incomparable musical fusion.
Clean Bandit 极具“传染性”的《A+E》是他们的第一张EP，短短几个月之后，他们就被大西洋唱片签下，并开始和众多电子乐歌手和制作人合作。他们还会自己创作和制作MV，没有人能阻挡CB创作属于他们的独特视频。
The band’s infectious track ‘A+E’ was their first recording and a few months later, the quartet signed to Atlantic Records. Working with array of eclectic singers and producers as well as self-directing and producing their music videos, there’s no stopping Clean Bandit when it comes to creative vision.
2014年的1月，乐队的新单曲《Rather Be》成为了全球最热门的单曲之一，几乎全球每一个电台都会播放这首歌。该单曲的销量和试听等数据突破五百万，打破了Spotify（连续七周占领全球Spotify榜单第一）和Shazam（连续八周占领其全球榜单，并有超一千五百万的话题讨论量）的记录，可见《Rather Be》绝对是2014年英国最热门、最畅销的单曲。
In January 2014, the band released their global smash hit single ‘Rather Be’, soaring through the airwaves of practically every radio station across the globe. With over 5 million global sales and counting, the track broke records on Spotify (#1 on Global Spotify Chart for 7 weeks), Shazam (#1 on the worldwide chart for 8 weeks and over 15 million tags) and has become the biggest-selling single by a UK act in 2014!
在2014年6月，乐队发行了他们的首张正式专辑《New Eyes》，并空降英国专辑排行榜的第三名，这也得益于乐队那些独特的MV。在2014年夏天，乐队几乎出演了英国所有影响力最大的音乐节，在Glasonbury音乐节中，乐队还成为了John Peel舞台最具人气和最有人群号召力的演出者。
Move to June 2014 and the band were at the forefront of their debut album release with New Eyes. The LP, which charted at #3 in the Official UK Albums Chart to a wealth of acclaim, showcases the band’s unique vision and musical spectrum. From playing practically every major UK festival this summer, including Glastonbury, where the band had the biggest-ever turnout at the John Peel Stage and selling out tours in the UK, Europe and US.
在2016年10月，乐队的新单曲《Rockabye》再创奇迹。在极短的时间里，《Rockabye》就成为了Clean Bandit在英榜的第二首头号热单，并连续九周蝉联榜首。不仅如此，该单曲还直接成为国际大热门，同时成为苏格兰、爱尔兰、澳大利亚、新西兰、丹麦、芬兰、德国、意大利、荷兰、瑞典等国的榜首热单。除此之外，乐队在英国、欧洲、美国等地的巡演也全部售罄。只能说，已经没有什么可以阻挡Clean Bandit了。
In October, 2016, the new single "Rockabye" became their second number-one hit in the UK, and remained at number one for nine weeks, which became another miracle in their career. The song became an international chart topper for the band, becoming number 1 in the UK, Scotland, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Austria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Sweden and Switzerland. Just like what the US media said, there’s no stopping them.
