Biography

Clean Bandit are a British group who are best known for their singles "Mozart's House" which debuted at number 17 on the UK Singles Chart and "A+E" that reached number 100. The band was founded in 2009.

Band members Jack Patterson, Grace Chatto and Milan Neil Amin-Smith met while studying as undergraduates at Jesus College, University of Cambridge. At the time, Chatto was leading a string quartet together with Amin-Smith. Chatto was Patterson's girlfriend at the time and Patterson would record Chatto's performances. He started re-mixing these recordings with drum beats and other electronic music he created and let Chatto listen to these recordings which she liked. One of their friends then wrote lyrics for the piece and the song "Mozart's House" materialized. Eventually, the idea of forming a band came.

The band's name, Clean Bandit, comes from a translation of a Russian phrase (Chatto and Patterson lived in Russia for a period); the meaning is similar to the English phrase 'utter' or 'complete bastard'.

In December 2012 the group released their first single "A+E" peaking to number 100 on the UK Singles Chart. On 29 February 2012 they released the video online for their single "UK Shanty", featuring Cambridge contemporary and supermodel Lily Cole. On 29 March 2013 they released the single "Mozart's House" the song has peaked to number 17 on the UK Singles Chart, making it their first Top 20 single in the UK. They later went on to release Rather Be feat. Jess Glynne on the 19th January 2014 which went straight into the chart at number 1 in the UK Singles Chart, making it their first number 1 single.
Chatto stated that the music videos that accompany the songs are integral to the works as a whole; the videos would be conceived during the process of writing the music. The videos are made independently by themselves and often have references to culture in them (e.g. the ice skating man in the video to "Dust Clears" is a reference to the painting by Henry Raeburn of The Skating Minister). Chatto and Patterson formed their own film production company cleanfilm to make music videos for themselves and other artists, and corporate videos.
