London Grammar

While London Grammar’s past two offerings, “Hey Now” and “Metal & Dust”, were minimalistic electro-pop tracks, the rising UK trio’s latest single, “Wasting My Younger Years”, is a sweeping, piano-led pop ballad that capitalizes on Hannah Reid’s vocals. Her voice, which wavers between delicate, soft cries and triumphant, soaring proclamations, has a hollowed-out, slightly soulful texture that makes it enveloping and heartbreaking at the same time. When she says, “Don’t know what you want / Don’t leave me hanging on,” there’s a power and an ache in her words that lingers long after the song leaves you. Listen in below.
