Powerplay: London Grammar – Rooting For You

This Weeks Powerplay comes from trio London Grammar.

They won over the music world almost instantly with their 2013 debut, “If You Wait”. But besides a handful of varied covers and an unreleased album track, the band hasn’t provided fans any truly new material since. It looks like they’re finally gearing up to make the 2017 the year of their return, as they just shared a new single called “Rooting For You”.

The song is a stirring, delicate ballad focused almost entirely on lead singer Hannah Reid’s voice. Sparse and echoing instrumentation plays with dramatic hope in the background, building ever so slightly as Reid’s vocals send the praises higher.

In the performance video released with the track, Reid is actually without accompaniment for the first few minutes, singing acapella until a small symphony is revealed behind her. Check out the video here.
