Happy Friday, everyone!
My pick for song of the week is “Symphony” by Clean Bandit featuring Zara Larsson. Ever since I heard her song “Never Forget You”, Zara has been on my radar as an up and coming artist. The Swedish singer is only 19 and has amazing range. I hope she’ll stick around for a while so we can hear what she sounds like when she’s older and her voice matures. Her second studio album So Good was released just last month.
Clean Bandit was formed in 2008 but didn’t release their debut single “A+E” until 2012. I’ve always loved the group’s mix of classical and electronic music. I’ve heard people say that classically trained musicians can be a bit uptight, but Bandit’s music says otherwise. It’s fun and every song will have you singing along.
Check out the video for “Symphony” below.
P.S. Kendrick played us when he mentioned April 7th in “The Heart Part 4”. His album won’t be released until April 14th. I’m salty.
