Easily in my top five songs of 2012, London Grammar’s debut single Hey Now was an eerily pure song that’s stripped-back, raw power simply blew me away. Ever since I have followed the band on facebook and twitter, waiting for any form of news on their progress and hopefully for a brand new song; finally yesterday they delivered. With an ice-cold delicacy, Metal and Dust soars emphatically over passionate strings, frosty synths and a heart-racing beat that trickles magically behind Hannah Read’s breathtaking vocals. This is potentially my favourite track of 2013 so far.
