Conclusion:

London Grammar's music is so calming. I love the balance of melodies and the sound of her voice. A lot of people have compared them to The xx and I can totally understand why. The sounds are repetitive (and not in an annoying way) and her voice echoes on top... it's so good. I've had the song above on repeat for the past 2 hours, no lie. They're such great fall music too. They stopped by Toronto already but I'll be sure to catch them next time!
