Listen: London Grammar – “Metal & Dust”

16 Feb

London Grammar

You’re a new band who’s been slaving away in the studio for months and months, honing your music ready to be shared with the world. You finally release your first song online and BOOM, the reaction is astounding. Blog after blog after blog is writing about you and proclaiming the brilliance of your track. Expectations are surpassed and then some as the world gets weak at the knees over your music.

What do you do next?

If you’re London Grammar you proclaim said debut track as a B-side only and drop another, equally fantastic, track to blow minds. Then, as an added bonus, you can announce the forthcoming release of an EP of the same name on your own label, also of the same name.

“Metal & Dust” is a soulful late night tune to relax with then nod your head to as the track builds. Robin from Breaking More Waves is spot on (in our opinion) in his assertion that the beat and strings, that gently rise throughout, evoke thoughts of Massive Attack’s “Unfinished Sympathy”. Hannah’s soft lullaby vocals will resonate and provoke a wry smile with anyone who has ever been in a relationship but damn if they aren’t as catchy as hell.

We’ve no idea what they are going to do next, but with “Metal & Dust” and “Hey Now” they have already set a crazy high benchmark; so whatever it is, it’s going to be interesting to hear.

“Metal & Dust” is out on 25 February and you can pre-order the limited edition 7″ vinyl here. The band is also playing a sold out headline London show at Electrowerkz on 27th March.
