Single Review – London Grammar – Rooting For You 

The Nottingham based trio are back with their first new material since 2013’s If You Wait. That was Album praised for its delivery and emotive imagery, but was seen as lacking in vitality and dynamism. It is hard to tell from their new track ‘Rooting For You’ if they’ve addressed the latter, for it is a swooning track with limited instrumentation aside from a delicate riff, piano nudge and some feathered string sections. It is chiefly a track to showcase Hannah Reid’s deep and at times ethereal vocals. There is little much to add beyond that, for we know how good she is and she seems to have improved further, but perhaps we’ll have to wait for the next track to see what the rest of the album may look like.
