The first thing that you notice about English rock trio London Grammar is the promise of Hannah Reid's voice to fill an arena. The group formed in ’09 during their freshman year at Nottingham University when guitarist Dan Rothman spotted a picture of vocalist Hannah with a guitar on facebook and asked if she wanted to jam. Dot Major (keyboard, djembe, drums) came into the picture later after being introduced by Rothmans girlfriend. Getting their start at local bars and clubs they posted their debut single “Hey Now” less than a year ago reaching nearly a million hits. Hannah’s dramatic, big voice is reminiscent of Florence Welch while Dot and Dan create ambient, soulful indie beats similar to The xx.
If this seems like your kind of thing, be sure to check out London Grammar's appearance on Disclosure's album, Settle (the song is called “Help Me Lose My Mind”), and also their excellent new single, “Strong”, which offers a new, less electronic, and more natural sound. We're not sure if this song signals a new direction for the band or if its just one song in that style, but either way, London Grammar is definitely an office favorite.
Listen below and watch out for their first album set to release September 9th.
