WeeklySNDtrack: London Grammar

By FT

When I first heard London Grammar I thought I was listening to Florence and the Machine.
When you hear them you’ll know what I mean.

Vocalist Hannah Reid sounds as grand as Florence Welch. And the music accompanying her has a similar hypnotic sound.

London Grammar consists of Hannah Reid, Dan Rothman and Dominic ‘Dot’ Major. Reid and Rothman attended the University of Nottingham together and the band was formed after Rothman noticed a picture of Reid on Facebook with a guitar and asked if she wanted to collaborate.

Their début EP Metal & Dust was released in February 2013 and their first full album If You Wait followed in September. On 13 January 2014, the band made their American TV debut on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon with the tracks “Strong” and “Wasting My Young Years.”

Here’s London Grammar in a LIVE performance on Seattle’s KEXP

And here’s their cover of “Nightcall” (from the movie Drive)

Pretty awesome, huh?

London Grammar will be on tour this summer, check out concert listings here.

But if you can’t wait to see them have a look at these pix from life on the road…
