Concert Review: London Grammar

On Friday, April 11th, London Grammar played a sold out show at Paradise Rock Club. Joined by their opening act, Haerts, both bands definitely made my $15 ticket worth it. Though I enjoyed Haerts‘s sound, at times it was quite hard to actually to hear their lyrics and the microphones seemed to be way too loud. However, when London Grammar came on stage, everything was perfect.

It was only recently that I discovered London Grammar and fell in love with their sound. The British trio was created in 2012 and since then has released a debut EP, Metal & Dust, and a full length album, If You Wait, which came out in September 2013. Artists similar to them would be bands such as The 1975, Disclosure, and Lorde.

Since their album release, they’ve become a huge household name. After witnessing their flawlessness Friday night, I can understand why. Their lead singer Hannah Reid has a peaceful, yet strong voice that can reach incredible notes and truly displays real talent. Backed by group mates Dan Rothman and Dot Major who bring the sound to her words, their chemistry is undeniable.

Their set list included popular favorites such as “Hey Now”, “Strong”, and “Wasting My Young Years”. Personally, I love “Strong”, but I also enjoyed “Metal & Dust”, as well as “Flickers”. Though there was no elaborate set or dancing, there really didn’t need to be. Reid‘s voice was enchanting enough and the playful banter between the trio showed how their relationship as band mates and friends is strong enough to entertain an audience.

I hope to hear many more great songs from London Grammar and can’t wait to see them in concert again!
