Platinum-selling British trio with critically acclaimed debut album and unique ambient sound
Hannah Reid, Dot Major and Dan Rothman formed London Grammar while at University in Nottingham. After spending most of 2012 holed up in the studio, they emerged with “Hey Now”, the track that lit up the blogosphere and now has over 4 million combined plays online.
A few months later, in February 2013, they released their first EP Metal & Dust, which included tracks; “Metal & Dust”, “Hey Now” and “Darling Are You Gonna Leave Me”. The band followed with a string of successful releases including, “Wasting my Young Years” in June and “Strong” in September.
Collaborating with Mercury Prize nominee, Disclosure, on “Help Me Lose My Mind”, London Grammar featured on Settle, the Lawrence brother’s No.1 debut album.
Their long-awaited debut album was released to critical acclaim on 9th September 2013. It was quickly certified gold along with being named iTunes ‘Album of the Year 2013’.
Summer 2013 saw the band performing a series of festivals across the UK, including Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party and The XX curated festival, Night + Day. A tour of the US followed along with a sold out UK headline tour in October. After a European headline tour and an appearance on Later... with Jools Holland, the band rounded out the year with their latest single, “Nightcall” – a reworking of Kavinsky’s standout track from the Drive Soundtrack.
2013 has laid the path for great things to continue for London Grammar in 2014, including sold out dates in Australia, and a sold out UK and US tour. Watch this space...
