Since meeting at Nottingham University in 2009, London Grammar have exploded onto the indie scene with their arching pop melodies, brooding musicality and powerful vocals delivered by vocalist/lyricist Hannah Reid, that have attracted parallels with Florence Welch.
Reid is joined by Dan Rothman on guitar and Juse Tzuke (drums, djembe and keys). Following the release of their debut album “If You Wait” (September 2013, Metal & Dust Recordings), and a trio of singles/EPs from the album earlier this year, London Grammar now embark on their first world tour, with a stop off at Brighton’s own Concorde 2.
Previously released EPs have been received well on international singles charts in Europe and Australia: electro-beat driven “Metal and Dust“, pensive guitar and key driven “Wasting My Young Years,” and melancholic anthem “Strong” that hit top 20 in singles charts in UK and Scotland. The album itself peaked at number 2 in UK and Australia.
The sell out show – relocated from the Haunt due to over-capacity demand – sees Fryars and Jaymes Young in support. Expect a haunting and atmospheric evening of melodic and emotively potent electro-pop.
Starting at 7.30pm, £10 advance + booking fees. Age restriction 14+ only. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult (18+). R.O.A.R.
New album”‘If You Wait” was released 9 September 2013 (Metal & Dust Recordings)
