Songfacts®:

  • Clean Bandit (from a HMV.com track-by-track): "Some inspirational advice from Grace (Chatto, cellist) in the verses, in duet with the brilliant Stylo G. Of all the songs on the album, we probably enjoy playing this song live the most."

    South Londoner Jason "Stylo G" McDermott is a Dancehall artist who grew up in Jamaica. He was immersed in music from a young age thanks to his late father, the reggae star Poison Chang. McDermott came to the UK when he was 14 and started releasing records on the underground. His debut single, "Soundbwoy" peaked at #18 on the UK singles chart in 2013.
  • The song's music video was filmed in two contrasting locations: Svalbard, a Norwegian island cluster in the Arctic Circle, and the Morocco city of Marrakesh with the surrounding Sahara Desert. Grace Chatto explained: "We wanted the contrast for the video of switching between the warm and cold climates, but also for the locations to have a unique identity about them as well. Svalbard has this incredible arctic desert, whilst Marrakesh is the complete opposite with the Sahara and the Medina."

    "It was incredible shooting the video with Stylo," she added. "He is this incredible force of energy, has this amazing charisma and is willing to do anything! He even took extra riding lessons especially for the video!"
  • A lot of the crew were were observing Ramadan during the filming of the Marrakesh portion of the video. Clean Bandit's Neil Amin-Smith recalled to MTV UK: "They couldn't even drink water while carrying all the heavy equipment around. I don't know how they did it."
