They’re fresh off a chart-topping hit in the UK. Clean Bandit, a British dance group for Cambridge, dropped their debut album early this month. It’s old-meets-new on the LP, which is fittingly titled: New Eyes. The record showcases the group’s distinctive fusion of dance, electro, house, classical, and pop; it’s full of reminders as to why the group was able to rise to prominence in their home country.

It remains to be seen whether Clean Bandit will end up a one hit wonder, but recent output from the group seems to indicate some staying power. The new single “Extraordinary” was released in mid-May, and it has climbed to the number 5 UK chart slot. The music video is dreamlike in bright color; it’s very much like the Japan-inspired video for “Rather Be.”

If you live stateside, it’s a good idea to get into Clean Bandit asap, before they crossover to US radio from across-the-pond. Don’t say we didn’t warn you! Once again, here are YouTube links to the music videos for mega-hit “Rather Be” and up-and-comer “Extraordinary.” You can also check both out after the jump…
