Clean Bandit star Grace Chatto on sexism in music

Clean Bandit star Grace Chatto claims she has been treated differently to her male bandmates.

The ‘Rather Be’ hitmaker and cellist of the pop group – also comprising Jack and Luke Patterson – has spoken out about her experience of sexism in the music industry.

She told Voir magazine in a cover interview: “Being the only girl in the band, you notice different treatment of us individually, which, at first, I was completely unaware of, but over the years noticed certain differences.”

The 38-year-old musician also teased their next single features a mystery artist Clean Bandit – who have released tracks with the likes of Demi Lovato, Julia Michaels, Anne-Marie, Jess Glynne and Zara Larsson, Rita Ora, Ellie Goulding, Craig David, and Charli XCX – have previously worked with.

She said: “Well, I can’t really reveal the singer that we’re about to release with, but I can say it’s someone we worked with before, which is amazing, because that last time was one of the best experiences of my whole career, so I’m really excited about this.

“We love the song more than any other song we’ve released in many years. Our energy is fully renewed every time we hear it.”

The ‘Tick Rock’ hitmakers – whose last studio album was 2018’s ‘What Is Love?’ – love it when they get to work in the studio with their collaborators rather than have them phone it in, and get a thrill out of directing and editing their own music videos.

Grace said: “I think the best experiences have been when we’ve written songs together with singers, like Julia Michaels, who featured in ‘I Miss You’. That was such an organic process and such a pure experience.

“Often with other songs, we write and finish them, and then think about which voice would be perfect. That’s really fun as well because we send them out and see who likes them.

“I think a lot of people think we just direct them [the videos] and don’t have that much to do with it, but we have been really hands on with every element, and we edit them ourselves as well.”
