London Grammar - Nightcall (LG re-edit)


This is our final post for the week as we take a short blog break – we’ll be back Monday 21st October.

Until then we’ll leave you with a cover version by a group that we’re seeing for the fifth time this year this evening. London Grammar’s take on Kavinsky’s Night Call is one of the many understated lullabies you’ll find on their debut album If You Wait. This soothing re-edit of the song takes the trio’s trademark moody piano, atmospheric guitars and Hannah Reid’s powerfully haunting vocal and gradually escalates them all towards the heavens. Depending on your perspective the LP's gentle glow is either a masterstroke in subtlety or a bit of a yawn inducer in its entirety, but away from the full length every tune when heard individually sounds majestic. Night Call is no exception.

Night Call will be released as part of an EP on December 8th to cap off a very successful year for the band.
