“Out At Night” by Clean Bandit (featuring Kyle & Big Boi)
On the song “Out at Night” Clean Bandit join forces with rappers Kyle and Big Boi to tell the tale of persons leading quiet lives during the day and wild lives during the nighttime. The song mainly focuses on two individuals. In the daytime they appear as self-collected, hard-working individuals but once the night descends, they let out a different, more-vibrant part of their nature and behave totally differently.
One is a woman who works an 8 to 5 in social isolation. However, in the evening she hits the bottle and takes advantage of the night’s activities. The other is a bespectacled student. The song infers that at night he goes out partying dressed as a woman.
Accordingly Big Boi’s verse centers on the relationship he is having with a “nocturnal” woman.
