|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!).
