Stream: “House” – London Grammar




London Grammar’s “House,” released on 5 April 2024, is the first single from their fourth upcoming studio LP The Greatest Love to be released on 13 September 2024. It has been three years since the remarkable realms of visionary emotion and transformation that we experienced in their 2021 album, Californian Soil.

House – London Grammar

This new song is traced as an intense anthem of self-empowerment within the immense interior world that can be created with another person. The shared resonance with an other that can be deeply curated in silence and language in aspiring to “build a city” within one’s house, yet how this possibility also ultimately revolves around distinctly seeing and feeling each other with unequivocal forms of transparency, as Hannah Reid ethereally sings in transporting us across time and space:

“I think that in the silence, we
Are climbing to the sky to sit with the stars
We might be apart
And in my deepest self-reflection
Build a city, stay forever young
Forever young
This is my place, my house, my rules
This is my place, my house, my rules
Do you see me? Feel me? Don’t think you do
’Cause this is my place, my house, my rules”
“You’re so welcome in this house that I have built
Where imagination feeds the things you feel
And you’re so welcome in this place that I am still
Where imagination feeds the things you feel”

The fleeting sense of youth as time drains before our eyes and what is only imagined needs to be acted on with resolve so that the other can profoundly see and feel you in that house as it ages. A house that is built with emotional tenacity and through acute self-reflection of always aspiring to new heights of what can be created through the imagination and built upon through dynamic levels of lived experience. London Grammar’s vibrant new song is a spell-binding single that inspires one to live otherwise in a world that is often dictated by vacuous cultural and societal norms, amidst considering how these norms and borders can be transcended within a revolutionary attitude of my house and my rules.
