Hear this wonderful downtempo balad now from the new Metal and Dust EP. I’ve had in in my ears ever since I’ve heard it on the Gilles Peterson Worldwide show a couple of months ago and its mesmerizing effect on me is not withering yet. This makes is more than a tune-of-the-week, but I’m making up for not sharing any music wonders in a long time.
The sensuous alto of the singer Hannah Reid will very likely take you places where your emotions have once flourish, while your body will very likely experience some fine goose gumps.
Pitchfork describes describes this song appropriately:
The materials of the song’s title concern the crumble of a life built on trust, a relationship where a couple argue, but never fight, and the house around them. The elemental metaphor is appropriate; London Grammar account for every slippery string, vocal echo, ultrasound heartbeat, and wordless, holy vocal peal on “Metal and Rust”, the second in a so-far immaculate collection.
Pay attention to grammar - London Grammar, a trio from you-know-where.
