londongrammerLondon Grammer – If You Wait (rating 4 out of 5)

This young British trio led by Vocalist Hannah Reid and her powerfully emotive voice that could give Florence Welch a run for her money, might be poised to be the next big thing in British music in 2014.  With an electronic pop reverb guitar sound that is similiar to that of The XX, the emotional landscape that is created keeps your attention throughout the album.  The Opener “Hey Now” with a stunning introduction to the powerful vocals, has you at hello, and “Wasting My Young Years” is a slow burn synth rock marvel.

The ballad “Strong” is powerful, and is a signature tune for the album.  This is another of those bands where their best work is probably ahead of them, but there is no need to wait to experience one of the truly fresh and unique voices in music today.
