Biography

Drawing comparisons to
Portishead, The XX and Florence and the Machine, London Grammar's grand,
melancholic, electro pop soundscapes made them one of the hotly tipped
breakthrough bands of 2013. Formed by Hannah Reid (vocals) and Dan Rothman
(guitar) while at Nottingham University in 2009, Dot Major
(multi-instrumentalist) joined later and together they started playing gigs in
local bars and crafting sparse, alternative R&B ballads. Signed to the
Ministry of Sound label, they became the talk of the blogosphere when a YouTube
posting of their track “Hey Now” received over two million hits. The EP Metal
and Dust
and the singles “Strong” and “Wasting My Young Years”
further heightened the buzz. Their 2013 debut album If You Wait to reach Number 2 in the UK Charts. After four years of touring, writing, and winning
awards, they won an Ivor Novello Award for Best Song Musically and Lyrically
for “Strong” as well as two AIM Independent Music Awards for Independent
Breakthrough of the Year and Most Played New Independent Act. They released the
single “Rooting for You” in 2017 followed by “Big Picture”. Those
led to the 2017 LP Truth Is a Beautiful Thing which went to the top of
the UK album chart, and reached the top 10 in several countries throughout
Europe. Four new singles in 2020 and 2021 would appear on the band’s third
album, 2021’s Californian Soil.
