SEA, strings and a supermodel as a mermaid-style siren… what’s not to love about the video for Clean Bandit’s UK Shanty?
Whimsical with an enticing electro twist, the collective offer up a fresh new folk sound in the shape of this irresistible little gem of a song.
And the clip, starring Lily Cole, is a delightful treat – just like a pearl nestled inside an oyster shell.

According to their Facebook page, the instrumental core is made up of: Jon Wandeck (bass, sax, one deck), Luke Patterson (drums), The Chatto Quartet and the vocalists that they work with include Sswelafar, Eliza Shaddad, Jungle VIP, Subliminal MC and Camilla Farrant.
