‘Californian Soil’ is the irrefutably beautiful third album from London Grammar, whose success and longevity as a band has traced the British pop graph for over a decade.

To celebrate the release, the band – consisting of Hannah Reid, Dan Rothman and Dot Major – performed the album in its entirety from the Alexandra Palace Theatre in London exclusively on YouTube.

It seems that ‘Californian Soil’ is certainly getting the praise with the press. Check out what they say, below:
“Hypnotically compelling…[Californian Soil] has a soft power that leaves you shaking” – The Daily Telegraph 4* (Album of the Week)
“Melodies feel constructed around the cathedral architecture of her pure, classically influenced vocals, which rise in soaring – often breathy – arches capable of carrying more emotional weight than you’d expect” – The Independent 4*
“A big new sound for a big year ahead…irresistible” – Evening Standard 4*
“A new energy saturates ‘Californian Soil’. Fizzing with club sounds and filled with bright lyricism, London Grammar are more confidant, and more fun, than they’ve ever been” – NME 4*
“Californian Soil’ is an unmissable foray in pop, rich in meaning and abundant in bangers” – Dork 4*
“Californian Soil, an album that puts the onus on the trio’s pop credentials, as well as their skill as moody balladeers” – Daily Mail 4*
“The trio’s trademark chilled Balearic beats are back. Better still, Hannah Reid’s voice and lyrics are stronger than ever” – Daily Star 4*
“A nudging departure from the grandiose continuity of Truth Is a Beautiful Thing, Californian Soil is indicative of the band incrementally tweaking their immaculate heart-rending aesthetic” – The Line Of Best Fit 9/10
“It’s also a record of sheer beauty and one that finds London Grammar at the absolute top of their game” – Clash 8/10
