Transcendent music is London Grammar’s goal

London Grammar are heading out on their UK tour this month, taking in Brighton Dome on February 3 (7pm).

Since introducing themselves with near-anonymous posts of two songs (Hey Now and Metal & Dust), London Grammar quickly captured the interest and imagination of music fans across the UK and beyond.

The tracks catapulted Hannah Reid, Dot Major and Dan Rothman straight into the spotlight, with music critics and fans eager to see what they did next.

The trio released the acclaimed Metal & Dust EP, sold out two London dates, played with The xx at their Night + Day festival, secured slots at near all of the UK’s major summer festivals – including Glastonbury, Bestival and Festival Number 6 – before confirming their own headline tour last October.

Their first official single release, Wasting My Young Years, went into the top 40 after a Radio 1 B List.

Their album last year was the result of 18 painstaking months spent writing and recording. Their aim, they say, was memorable, timeless and transcendent music.

“That’s how this all started,” says Dan, “and it’s always been our primary goal, to keep space in the music.

“The way that, say, the guitar and vocal interact is massively important to us.”
