London Grammar – Wasting My Young Years (single)
London Grammar consists of Dot Major, Daniel Rothman and the Hannah Reid on vocals, fresh from their appearance on Settle the debut album by Disclosure, on the track Help Me Lose My Mind, and following on from the Metal & Dust EP, London Grammar release their new single Wasting My Young Years.
For those of you who have not heard of London Grammar before, I would describe their sound as a cocktail of Dido, with much more expressive vocals, with a splash of Judie Tzuke topped off with a measure of Florence Welch and then I am only halfway to describing their sound.
The radio version is both sparse and haunting in the verses and then we have the pulsating chorus, it lends itself well to being remixed. Wasting My Young Years is like a rave and chill out in one record, as it starts rather chilled with Reid’s vocals gliding in then builds and builds (in the way old Faithless records used to) and then you get the pulsating Baby We Are refrain and then another come down and then it builds again.
Reid’s vocals on this track are faultless, they demand that you take the journey of this song with her and right at the end when Reid sings don’t leave me hanging on, you just hope that they wont leave you hanging on for more quality songs like this.
Making records like this London Grammar are definitely not wasting their young years
