Grammy Award-winning quartet Clean Bandit unveils the official video for their hit single ‘Tears’ out now via Big Beat Records. The huge comeback single features vocals from the UK’s 2015 X Factor winner Louisa Johnson and has heralded over 20 million streams to date, storming the charts for the band worldwide. “Tears” hasn’t left iTunes’ UK Top 5 chart and the UK’s Top 10 Official Singles Chart for six consecutive weeks, peaked at #11 on Spotify’s ‘Hot Songs’ chart and has dominated Shazam, sitting at #1 on ‘Future Hits’ and #2 on their overall chart.
Renowned for their inimitable, self-directed music videos, the official video for ‘Tears’ takes direction from 2 x Ivor Novello-winning band member and creative force, Jack Patterson. Incorporating fire, water and stunning slow motion, the video even features a cameo from the owl that played Hedwig in the Harry Potter movies!
Jack commented – “We always make our own videos, and this one has been an amazing experience. There are zero special effects and we did everything in front of the camera. As you’ll see, there’s a lot of water and fire and even a special guest cameo from the Harry Potter owl, Hedwig! The video conveys the fire you need to find within yourself in order to part from a person you love.”
Clean Bandit, who released their debut album “New Eyes” (Big Beat Records) in 2014, has sold over 12 million singles and 1.6 million albums worldwide, won a 2015 Grammy for “Best Dance Recording” for their international smash single “Rather Be” which held #1 global Spotify placement for 7 weeks, as well as the #1 global Shazam placement for 7 weeks, garnering the most Shazams in the world for 2014.
