There is so much fantastic indie pop music being made right now, and one of my most recent pop obsessions has been London Grammar. My first taste of London Grammar was the lead single “Hey Now” last year, after the band’s publicist sent a link to the song. Instead of the usual “oh great, another indie band,” the haunting, atmospheric quality instantly grabbed me.
Hannah Reid’s voice is uniquely gorgeous, and the simple arrangements always push the focus on her vocals. Apparently it wasn’t a conscious decision, it was just because they couldn’t agree on hardly anything.
A few weeks ago I saw the band play in Dallas, and it wasn’t the most energetic of sets, but the music and vocals still sounded spot-on. To read my review and see photos from the show click here.
