London Grammar - "Wicked Game" (Chris Isaak cover)

london grammar

During a recent trip to BBC's Maida Vale studios to record a session, the on-the-rise UK trio London Grammar delivered some tracks from their upcoming If You Wait, and this fantastic cover of Chris Isaak's 1989 torch-bearing standard "Wicked Game." Basically, there's no excuse for you to not listen to this; it might be one of the most gorgeous songs we've heard since, uh, last time London Grammarreleased a single. Hannah Reid's sublime, soaring vocals hold court over her band's awesome reinvention of the instrumentals - those delicate guitar echoes are familiar, but that skittering drum machine beat is new, and frankly pretty brilliant. Check it out.
