Clean Bandit unveil violin-smashing new video for 'Extraordinary'

2 April 2014, 09:42

Clean Bandit, the chart-topping dance act made up of a classical string quartet, have revealed their new music video for forthcoming single 'Extraordinary'.

The video, shot on location in Cuba, shows various members of the string quartet playing cellos and violins in exotic locations, before one violin in particular is sent crashing over a waterfall.

The video also features cellist Grace Chatto perching precariously on a tree trunk over a river while managing to still play the cello.

There's also a micro-pig on a piano. 

Clean Bandit were formed in Cambridge after they studied together at Jesus College. They first hit the UK singles charts in 2013 with their song, 'Mozart's House'. They've since managed to top the singles charts with the single 'Rather Be'.

You can watch the video, which premiered on The Guardian website, below:
