81* Hey now

Wake up!

That’s what the title of today’s song is trying to tell us. Open your eyes and your heart, listen to your instincts and dare to wake up…

London Grammar

lg

British trio with Hannah Reid as the main voice. They released in 2013 their debut album called “If you wait” which features today’s single.

Fun fact: This song is the soundtrack of J’adore (Dior’s perfume) latest campaign with a remix made by The Shoes.

One detail that I love in music, and that I will never stop loving, is a clean introduction that let’s us appreciate the sound of one single instrument. And then, of course, a strong, vibrant voice!

This song has it both along with interesting synthesizer effects, easy rhythm and a lot of emotion without making this an explosive song rather a relaxing one.

Perhaps this isn’t their most popular song but it definitely summarizes the classical features of their music.

Finally, let’s take a minute to appreciate this band’s beautiful logo:

…And here the pure lyrics (english/spanish):

Hey now
Letters burning by my bed for you
Hey now
I can feel my instinct here for you
Hey now
By my bed for you
Hey now, hey now

Oh, you know it is frightening
Oh, you know it’s like lightning
Hey now, now

Hey now
Letters burning by my bed for you
Hey now
Leave it to the wayside like you do, for you
Imagination calling mirrors for you
Hey now, hey now
