London Grammar

The Greatest Love

    The Greatest Love follows the British trio’s critically acclaimed #1 selling album Californian Soil, which was released in 2021 and earned the band their second BRIT nomination for Best British Group. Arriving over a decade since the trio first entered our consciousness, the new album is a celebration; the sound of a band laying to rest the past and realising a newfound sense of freedom.

    First single House embodies London Grammar’s new trajectory as frontwoman Hannah Reid delivers the uncompromising lyric: This is my place, my house, my rules. Speaking about the single Hannah said, “House is about drawing boundaries around yourself. When I hit my thirties, my mindset shifted, and I no longer felt like a victim of anything – it all felt within my power. I thought, making music should be fun, and we're gonna make that happen.”

    Having first formed as teenagers at University, their seminal double-platinum selling debut If You Wait paved the way for what was to become a hugely successful career for the band, the rare longevity of which has firmly rooted London Grammar in British pop culture. Now over 10 years later, the band have sold more than 3 million albums world-wide, with two #1 selling records, 1 billion streams, an Ivor Novello and numerous BRIT Award nominations under their belts.

      Californian Soil

        London Grammar’s success and longevity as a band has traced the British pop graph for over a decade.

        The new album, Californian Soil, embodies a new clarity of purpose centred around frontwoman Hannah Reid, who crafts a message of femininity and power on the new material. 

        STAFF COMMENTS

        Barry says: London Grammar's latest outing follows 2017's 'Truth Is A Beautiful Thing' and places much more emphasis on Reid's voice, veering into rich orchestral downbeat territory. Though the typical guitars and indie chord progressions are still present, it's a much more refined and nuanced direction, and one that suits them perfectly.

        London Grammar follow up their much lauded debut with their newest outing, 'Truth Is A Beautiful Thing'. Scaling the same emotional highs as the debut but with a much more refined and mature outlook. This young trio skillfully segue from the euphoric orchestral swells and intensely heartfelt vocal gymnastics of 'Rooting For You', through the U2-esque anthemic highs of the soaring majesty of 'Big Picture' through to the robust and richly evocative mid-way point. There are echoes of the spine-chilling instrumental plucks of Daughter's debut on 'Hell To The Liars', moving through to stuttering bass-heavy electronic drums and covert post-dubstep atmospherics on 'Non Believer'. 

        This is a brilliantly constructed and smoothly produced collection, sweeping through heady instrumental phrases and chillingly evocative vocal passages, rich with melody and swimming with brittle but perfectly constructed walls of sound.  

        STAFF COMMENTS

        Barry says: Tender, hushed vocals, soaring guitar echoes and brittle keys are the order of the day here, forming a heady and invigorating combination of newly matured songwriting skills and otherworldly ambience. A deft and more than capable follow-up to their much lauded debut.
