British EDM group Clean Bandit, who you might remember had one of 2014’s catchiest songs with “Rather Be,” is back with an infectious new song and even more beautiful music video.
“Symphony” features Swedish pop star Zara Larsson’s crystalline vocals set to a light, but powerful beat. Lyrically the song compares the feeling of slowly falling in love with the power of a musical symphony, growing with power and intensity.
While it’s a great song on its own, the music video gives it some extra power. It tells the story of a recently widowed man who is mourning the death of his recently deceased boyfriend. Eventually, he finds the courage to go on and continue leading his orchestra despite the heartbreak he’s dealing with.
“The conductor leads the symphony orchestra that we are part of,” said Clean Bandit member Grace Chatto in an interview with Gigwise. “Through music, he finds strength going through heartbreak and loss.”
