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.
