Grace Chatto of Clean Bandit: BDS is “Terrible and Very Stupid”


British electronic music band Clean Bandit is heading to Israel next month. In case you don’t recognize the name, you surely know this song – it has been viewed over 1.8 billion times on YouTube alone!

Yeah, them.

Their singer Grace Chatto was recently interviewed by Israel’s Walla! News, and she had some very pointed things to say about BDS:

Did the BDS movement pressure you not to come to Israel?

“No, when I created the band, we were seven (band members), and one of them did not want to go to Israel for that reason … I found it terrible and very stupid … We found ourselves in an unpleasant situation because of this, but unfortunately I could not do anything with it. Now we can do what we want to do, and that is to visit Israel and perform, so yes, I wanted to come to you all my life, and I am so very excited. “
