There’s a kind of a hush: London Grammar quietly sweeps into Paradise Friday April 11

Haunting singer Hannah Reid will stand rigid at the mikestand. (Think Oasis’ Liam Gallagher, but younger, prettier, female and not surly.) She will lead London Grammar,  a young trio of Brits who arguably may be the hippest new band to cross the Atlantic this season, through a set at the Paradise Friday April 11. On their debut CD, “If You Wait,” London Grammar delivers moody and ethereal slow-burn music that recalls Portishead, Massive Attack and Evanescence. Reid’s voice conveys both power and vulnerability.  It’s in thatThink Florence + the Machine, next generation or maybe more specifically The xx Mach 2. They’re album  entered the UK charts at No. 2. Thoughtful anthem: “Wasting My Young Years.” They’ve been known to cover Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game,” and that would seem a perfect choice. We expect a hushed, Lambchop-like house, as LG weave their quiet magic. Sometimes, all these atmospherics can get overly precious – no question – and other times, they hit that bittersweet spot just right. Expect an hour-long set. British PM David Cameron is reportedly a fan, which is neither a plus or a minus, just reporting here.

Show is sold-out through LiveNation or the club, so you’ll have to go secondary market on tix, running $33-$55. Haerts opens at 9.
