Riff: Clean Bandit – “Rather Be”

Jun 26, 2014

We staked out on a mission to find our inner peace/Make it everlasting so nothing’s incomplete/It’s easy being with you, sacred simplicity/As long as we’re together, there’s no place I rather be

from Rather Be lyrics by Clean Bandit

Playful enough to hook the young at heart yet mature beyond its years. The fundamental building blocks of house are firmly set and drive the beat forward with purpose, the melodic interludes shaping the perspective along the way. Love is the answer, but to get to it you have to leave the ego behind.
