After announcing their third full-length album, Californian Soil, English indie-pop band, London Grammar dropped their third single, “Lose Your Head.” The three piece has become well renowned for burying a whole world of stories rich in melancholy and magic in their music.
Vocalist, Hannah Reid, dubs the track as the anthem about power and control in relationships. “The lyrics are quite dark, but I wanted to show the song in an upbeat way,” she says (1).
As it blends Reid’s powerfully soothing vocals with the classic beat that the band has become famously known for, “Lose Your Head” battles against its demons fearlessly while retaining its positive tone. Paired with a visually stunning music video, the track is peach tones and gently rolling waves of emotion.
Throughout the career of the band, London Grammar and Reid are ready to speak out about the challenges of being a woman in the music industry. The album is set to embrace vulnerability and femininity as a whole, and gaining power and control while staying true to oneself. “You imagine success will be amazing. Then you see it from the inside and ask, ‘Why am I not controlling this thing? Why am I not allowed to be in control of it? And does that connect, in any way to being a woman? If so, how can I do that differently?’” Reid commented (1).
Californian Soil will be out on April 9th this year. Stay tuned, and stream the single on Spotify now.
