Jess Glynne - Hold My Hand

The release of this song ultimately makes me question Clean Bandit's legitimacy as a pop act. Jess Glynne was after all the uncredited powerhouse behind last years monster hit Rather Be. And seeing as we've heard nil from those hipsters in the last 12 months, (ok that's not technically true, but unless u have the new Rather Be, I pretty much dgaf) I am inclined to believe this is who we should be keeping tabs on. Jess Glynne not only has a magical voice, she perfectly straddles the line between house and pop. Hold my Hand is bringing disco realness, and there is something very 90s romcom about it. You know how there are always celebratory scenes at the end !? I feel like it could have soundtracked the last part of Love Actually. Fuck the Beach Boys!! OK I kid. (maybe). I hope this song takes over the world in 2015. Also Jess Glynne, I hope you make it, because I need to see the Pantene commercial you will eventually appear in.
