Video of the Day: “Strong” by London Grammar

Share this post

The Brits, for all their flaws (royalty, The War of 1812) do some things really well. Like, music, for example. London Grammar is the latest export from the United Kingdom, and in their video for “Strong” they take on a seemingly population-less Los Angeles.

The sound is Sarah McLachlan meets Florence and the Machine meets Enigma, and one can easily envision Hannah Reid‘s ethereal vocals echoing throughout the nave of a gothic cathedral.

One piece of advice: crank it.

Behrnsie has a love for music that dare not speak its name. He attends many shows and can often be found counting out the beats for no discernible reason. He played alto saxophone in his middle school jazz band, where he was best known for infuriating his instructor when it was revealed that he played everything by ear, and could not in fact read music. He takes great pride that this is the same talent/affliction that got Tori Amos kicked out of the Peabody Academy. He does not live in his parents’ basement….except during the holidays.
