Warning: London Grammar will make you feel feelings--like, sensitive, raw, emotional feelings--whether you asked for it or not. But if you're anything like us, you'll definitely love it.
We love it so much that we've had the London-based threepiece on repeat ever since their debut album If You Wait first landed in our inbox several weeks ago. Hannah Reid, Daniel Rothman and Dot Major have been swirling around the internet for a few months now, thanks to their lush, layered sound and their cinematic soundscape. Of course, they've been drawing inevitable comparisons to the xx, since these guys also make gorgeous, sensitive songs that you can actually dance to (which is definitely easier said than done).
Bottom line: If You Wait is one of those rare albums that you can tune out to, listen to over and over, and memorize all of the lyrics without even realizing it. And the best part is, you can do it all starting today. The digital version of the record just hit iTunes, so download it here--we'll take London Grammar over boring grammar class any day.
