The London Grammars debut at NOS Alive on July 9th. Day they share the Sagres stage with the already announced Parov Stelar, Seasick Steve and Inhaler.
The band broke into the British scene as early as 2013. With their debut album, “If You Wait”, they sold over 2 million copies, and, in the middle, Hannah Reid (voice), Dan Rothman (guitar) and Dot Major (drums and keyboards) accumulated awards and nominations that caught the eye of the most varied international looks. These include one Ivor Novello, two Independent Music Awards (AIM) and two nominations for the Brit Awards.
Their second album, “The Truth Is A Beautiful Thing”, featuring Jon Hopkins on the single “Big Picture”, comes out in 2017 and goes straight to the top spot in the UK. And in 2018 the trio is once again nominated for a Brit Award. It is in these two years that they have been touring the world on a tour that has exhausted virtually every room they have ever visited.
The trio’s music is a mix of electronic, indie soul and techno-folk traits where Reid’s voice stands out, is heady on album and overwhelming on stage, resulting in melodious and intense performances. The band also often has a foot on the dance floor, and the collaboration with Disclosure, “Help Me Lose My Mind” is one of the best known examples. The latest single “Let Me Go” from 2019 was made in collaboration with Flume.
The band’s music also received remixes from names such as Gui Boratto, Bonobo, Tiga, and Lindstrøm and Prins Thomas.
The London Grammar promise to continue to win fans wherever they go and their performance on July 9th at the Sagres Stage on the Algés Promenade will be no exception. A concert not to be missed that wants to make history on this year’s Festival poster.
