& Nominated for British Breakthrough Act 2014
London Grammar continue to prove just why they’re one of the most exciting new bands to breakthrough as their debut album, If You Wait, entered the UK album charts at number 2 outselling both: Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke. With their first ever headline tour sold out
With “If You Wait” London Grammar have created an album of graceful sophistication
This is an enthralling, stunning, deeply emotive album that perfectly marries understated electronica to sublime vocals and melodies
It’s an assured collection of 11 songs that capture a mixture of exhilaration and heartbreak that is all their own.
If You Wait is emotional, uplifting and stunningly beautiful. The use of trippy, light and airy dance beats along with strong, lung-busting vocals creates an album that is pushing music into the future
International allure. Hannah Reid’s voice is like a balm to the soul. It even works over the radio and the elegant “Strong” is the best evidence of this yet. The vocals soar over a sultry background reminiscent of the soundscapes of Massive Attack and Portishead.
Hannah Reid indeed graceful and sensitive, Reid’s voice could cure cancer. It’s angelic yet brooding, pure yet fierce, consuming yet ethereal. Her range is incredibly wide, flirting swiftly between a deep chest voice and tragic falsetto
