Rather Be is brilliant. Would be a fantastic UK #1 and I'll definitely be buying this tomorrow.

I'm surprised how little discussion there is about this song - it's got 2 milion views, and is UK #1 on iTunes!

This is a brilliant song, haven't heard much of Clean Bandit, but after this and Mozart's House, I'll be sure to get into them.

Rather Be is currently at #1 in the midweeks by the way!

I hold my hands up, I was absolutely wrong on this. #1 in the midweeks, great for Clean Bandit - any new fans; check out their previous single 'Dust Clears', it is an absolute awesome vibe as well.

Yay!... Number 1! I was wondering, do people think that Clean Bandit will have a long career, or will this be a one-hit-wonder?

I suspect they will be booked for a lot of festivals this summer on the back of this singles reception. They have an impressive back catalogue of music already and have high hopes for their album.

I really like Clean Bandit I was lucky to see them perform back in November as they supported Bastille. Great live act

Meh, it's nothing special.

Just sounds like run-of-the-mill 80s dance music to me..the kind of thing that would have been lucky to scrape into the top 15 in 1984.

Sorry to sound like an old fart but people are very easily pleased these days.

Like most of the 'new bands' since 2000, they'll be nothing more an afterthought consigned to the bin of obscurity.

Hmmmm.. the fact they've been building up there chart performace since A&E, last year makes me think they'll be around a while.

Meh, I think it's really average. I'm a bit surprised it's number 1, the chorus is alright but I find the rest rather forgettable.

I think this will be their biggest hit, but they will maintain a loyal fanbase to keep going.
