Perhaps it’s this cold and grey weather but I’ve been in the mood to listen to beautiful calming female vocal music. If you’ve not heard of London Grammar yet, listen below, you may recognise ‘Wasting My Young Years’.
London Grammar are a British trip hop trio formed by Hannah Reid, Dot Major and Dan Rothman. Their music has been described as “a blend of ambient, ethereal and classical sounds” with melancholy guitar, soaring vocals and plaintive lyrics. Hannah Reid’s powerful, brooding vocals, prominent on all of London Grammar’s tracks released to date, are often compared to those of Judie Tzuke and Florence Welch. Reid also contributes to the band through her self-written lyrics which she describes as “emotionally affected”. As disclosed in an interview with a Glamour UK magazine, she “writes about people who come in and out of my life.” The song “Wasting My Young Years”, which has received over 1.8 million views on YouTube, was written about her ex-boyfriend.
