Random 30 2013: London Grammar - Wasting My Young Years (Sound Remedy Remix)

London Grammar’s polished and rather prissy debut album, If You Wait, won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but it did peak at number two on the UK album charts, so it was certainly popular. Some sections of the mainstream media have touted the trio as one of the year’s best new acts, and there’s no question in my mind that the band’s music is mature beyond its otherwise very youthful demographic.

London Grammar: mature beyond their young years ..

‘Wasting My Young Years’ is one of the singles off the album and it was apparently written by vocalist Hannah Reid about an ex-boyfriend. It reached number five on the UK Indie charts. The original iTunes single release came bundled with a number of remixes, but by far the best of the lot was an unofficial remix by the Venice Beach-based producer Sound Remedy.

This subtle re-working captures all of the track’s raw emotion and high melodrama just perfectly, and it’s been a regular on rotate in my house over the past couple of months – not only thanks to me, but also thanks to my teenage daughter (naturally!).
