SUNDAY FUNDAY: Clean Bandit ft Alex Newell and Sean Bass - "Stronger" - [ATLANTIC]
What's odd about "Stronger" isn't that it is another high quality house track with gorgeous strings, but that it is the first time that the string quartet hasn't listed the singers as part of the title. It's surprising, since Glee singer Alex Newell is having a big hit with Blonde as the voice of "All Cried Out" while his version of "Show Me Love" is making waves as well. Sean Bass is the brother of "Extraordinary" singer Sharna Bass. All that aside, even though "Stronger" is similar in vibe to their other releases, the lyrics are uplifting and inspiring making it something that might be sung to bring people in for a Glee finale. For club consumption, the remixes are all "deep house" with Mike Mago bringing a Nightcrawlers/MK vibe, Camelphat adding a strong piano hook, and Max Sanna & Steve Pitron injecting a bit of a pop sound while keeping the track "deep." "Stronger" is just another reason why 'New Eyes' is one of the electronic dance music albums of recent memory.
