NEW MUSIC: London Grammar – Hey Now
by Winston "Stone" Ford
If you’ve known me for a while, then you know that I’ve been pretty indifferent about music in 2012. There was a lot of good music, but there wasn’t much great music released this year. Blame the Internet for that.
However, this track by “mysterious” trio London Grammar might just be one of the best I’ve heard all year. While other artists are relying on vocal tricks and looks to be “cool,” this stripped down track is subtle, letting lead singer “Hannah” (no last name listed) ride over the subtle beat. The result is rather amazing and I hope to hear more from this group soon.
And of course, they’re from the UK.
