LONDON GRAMMAR is a name you should become familiar with, be able to spell correctly and properly use in a good music sentence. The highly elusive 3-piece group, known as LONDON GRAMMAR, has successfully dangled their musical carrot in front of my ears with the release of their debut track “Hey Now”. I first heard the deeply emotive song last December and I came away from that moment very impressed.
“Hey Now” is a stunningly beautiful tune filled with a lush blend of calm electronic piano tones, sporadic drum shout echoes and tiptoeing guitar sequences. The standout lead vocals are distinctly powerful and gorgeously controlled. As the lyrics rush around the ebbs and flows of intense emotions, it’s easy to appreciate the harnessed strength behind the song. “Hey Now” may come in a small package but it is simply an amazing three and a half minute musical experience.
It’s hard to determine if LONDON GRAMMAR has the range to make music that will standout amongst the flood of amazing new artists coming out these days but “Hey Now” is definitely a great start. I am intrigued by the mystery behind the London trio and I anxiously await news on their next big move. Will we hear anything soon?! We shall see!
