It’s easy to remember a relationship of my young past and to think of those times where I questioned if the effort to keep it going was worth it at all anymore. This is the central theme of LONDON GRAMMAR’s new tune “Wasting My Young Years”, at least that is my take on the song, and it sounds amazing once again. The 3-member group has steadily climbed up my personal favorites list ever since I first heard the song “Hey Now” last year and later “Metal & Dust” only 2 months ago. After hearing a third straight memorable song created by the talented trio, it’s clear to see any decision to release a full length album at some point will be the right one. The album will also potentially be one of the best of the year.
“Wasting My Young Years” is a slower tempo song bursting at the emotional seems but it is held back with the reins of beautiful subtlety that is absolutely incredible to hear. There is something truly magical about listening to Hannah’s lead vocals and the experience is so out-of-body, it’s very hard to describe in words. Hannah’s combination of power, intensity and breaths of vulnerability mixed with a gorgeous blend of guitar, drum and piano expressions are easily goose bump inducing. “Wasting My Young Years” is definitely one of my favorite songs of the year so far and LONDON GRAMMAR is a name I will be keeping an open ear on this year. I can only expect more great tunes!
