London Grammar – Metal & Dust 8/10 Metal & Dust Newcomer London Trio London Grammar is making a splash with their debut EP, Metal and Dust.

Been sitting on this debut video from Liverpool singer-songwriter Jetta for over a month, even though it's been out since late last year (sorry V). Jetta's voice in this video can be compared to that of Florence Welch with production that sounds like something The xx would do.

In the meantime, check out our early review here .
