“Symphony” by Clean Bandit feat. Zara Larsson

zara-larsson-clean-banditIf you are still over the moon with that Oscars winner for best film this year, then you are in for a treat from UK’s firebrand Clean Bandit who is poised to numb your senses with a
cascading wall of sound and drown you with overly slick synths and multi-orchestral instrumentations. “Symphony” is the group’s most emotionally-charged single yet from their third studio album.

While there is no Anne-Marie or Louisa Johnson to lend their superb vocals to this live entity, Swedish dance-pop royalty Zara Larsson effortlessly fills big shoes in her
rendition of mourning set to music with her soaring pipes that give a stark contrast to the flooding instrumentation in this emotional banger against a narrative of grief and loss. With her sunlit and uptempo hits like “Lush Life” and “Ain’t My Fault”, Larsson has proven her mettle with this quantum leap into a terrain that may not be familiar to her avid fans.

But “Symphony” is definitely a welcome change for Larsson who tightens it up against the backdrop of string-sweetened and lushly arranged track courtesy from the certified hitmakers of “Rockabye” and “Tears”. Most surprisingly, the fusion is as timeless as its message.
