Review of London Grammar New Single ‘Wasting My Young Years’
London Grammar were locked away in 2012 putting together their debut album and on 16th June release a new single ‘Wasting My Young Years’. This follows on from the release of their debut EP release ‘Metal & Dust’.
Every track they have released so far is the ultimate in chill down music and ‘Wasting My Young Years’ is no exception. ‘Wasting My Young Years’ is an emotional and passionate track featuring an intricate piano hook and haunting vocals that lead into a beautiful and powerful chorus backed by escalating drums and guitars. ‘Wasting My Young Years’ received its first play on Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show last Wednesday and can be listened to here: http://www.londongrammar.com/
If you want to bring yourself down after a night of partying you can’t do better than this band at the moment. I love ‘Metal and Dust’ and ‘Wasting My Young Years’ is a close second.
London Grammar are Hannah Reid, Dot Major and Dan Rothman who formed the band while at university together. After being holed up in the studio for most of 2012 working on their debut album, London Grammar dropped their first offering ‘Hey Now’ on their Soundcloud in December which has almost 370,000 plays to date.
London Grammar recently performed their first London headline show at a sold out Electrowerkz and will be performing a second sold out headline show at London Islington Assembly Hall on 15th May.
