Description

Since introducing themselves with near anonymous posts of two songs (Hey Now and Metal & Dust) late last year, London Grammar quickly captured the interest, and more importantly, the imagination of music fans across the globe.

The tracks catapulted Hannah Reid, Dot Major and Dan Rothman straight into the spotlight, with music critics and fans eager to see what they did next. The trio released the acclaimed ‘Metal & Dust EP’, sold out two London dates, played with The xx at their Night + Day festival, secured slots at near all of the UK’s major summer festivals – including Glastonbury, Bestival and Festival Number 6 – before confirming their own headline tour this October, which has already sold out the first London date with a second now announced.

Their first official single release, ‘Wasting My Young Years’, strode confidently into the UK’s Top 40 after a Radio 1 B List. Australia has shown their love for the band, with triple j adding the track immediately and the video lighting up the blogosphere. The band is currently the number one most blogged about artist, according to Hype Machine.

It’s no understatement that London Grammar’s for­thcoming album is one of the most highly anticipated debuts this year.

If You Wait is a result of 18 painstaking months spent writing and recording. Each of the 11 tracks is testament to the trio’s innate understanding of the roles that subtlety, contrast and restraint have played in the creation of memorable, timeless and transcendent music. “That’s how this all started,” says Dan, “and it’s always been our primary goal, to keep space in the music. The way that, say, the guitar and vocal interact is massively important to us.”

Heavily involved in every decision made on the album, the band handpicked their team, working closely with producers Tim Bran (The Verve, Richard Ashcroft, La Roux) and Roy Kerr AKA The Freelance Hellraiser. Striving for the best possible result, they drafted in Roc Nation’s KD (Outkast, Beyoncé, Jay-Z) to mix the record, alongside Grammy-winning Tom Coyne (Adele’s 21) from Sterling, joining them to master.

Tracks like ‘If You Wait’ and ‘Flickers’ possess that strange duality of lament and defiance, filled with textures, colours,shadings and interjections that are subtle yet deliver devastating power. ‘Strong’, is the final, killer blow. Building – as you would expect from London Grammar – from nothing, from the barest of bones, Hannah’s soaring vocals propels the song to its crashing climax.

More than delivering on their promise, London Grammar’s elec­trifying debut solidifies them as being one of the most exciting and innovative bands to emerge in 2013.
