Favourite Track of September: London Grammar's "Strong"

If you've yet to hear English indie-pop trio London Grammarwho are powerful blend of grand lead vocals and haunting The xx-reminiscent melodies - you need to purchase their September 9 debut immediately, if not sooner. If You Wait is an impressive collection of love songs carried by lead singer Hannah Reid's striking croon (previously featured on Disclosure's "Help Me Lose My Mind") - which is already one for the books alongside the likes of soulful leading ladies Florence Welch, Imogen Heap and Jessie Ware.

"Strong" is an instant classic, in my mind, and probably my favourite new track of this fall. Outside of Reid's commanding vocals, the stunning downtempo single has enough ethereal keyboard and arresting guitar plucks to stop you in your tracks. As the romantic and airy piece chugs on and gets repeated, London Grammar's longlasting potential shines brighter.
