I'm not going to lie. I've gotten into London Grammar in a big way. Everything they release puts a shiver down my spine like I just watched The Blair Witch Project alone in a dark room. Except without the horrifying ending.

This cover of the Chris Isaak track Wicked Game is of course no exception. From the reverb soaked guitar right the way through to the Massive Attack style electronic drums, this has goose bumps written all over it. Vocalist Hanna Reid just keeps hitting the nail on the head with her vocals and I can absolutely see her becoming the next big voice in popular music. Let's all just take a moment to appreciate that this particular recording is live. Live. And it sounds this good. Hot dam, London Grammar have got one hell of a bright future.
