Broken Wing by Grammatics

It's an honour and a buzz to be able to say that my sister-in-law (they're not married, that's just the easiest way of saying it) is in one of the most exciting emerging bands in the UK (even NME say so). They're called Grammatics, look impossibly cool, and sound even cooler. If you're a fan of expansive, melodramatic pop (and let's face it, who isn't) then you really need to have a listen. Start with Broken Wing on their myspace - a beautifully simple ballad with a bombastic coda - and move onto Shadow Committee. The latter will confuse your ears for a while, but keep listening... :)

Seconded! (It was to have been firsted but STUPID machine at work wouldn't let me comment...)

How can I get their music (and pref on CD format...)?

I knew the Arcade Fire fans would approve! If you go to the myspace, they're currently selling eps - but no Broken Wing on there, alas :) See where it says "Limited edition handmade tour EPs - buy now!" under the blogs. The single, with Shadow Committee and Broken Wing can be downloaded here!

Cheers, Anna.
We do love our melodramatic pop!
