Het Britse trio rond Dominic Major, Hannah Reid en Dan Rothman brengt in 2013 het debuutalbum If You Wait uit. Van het album bereikt de single Wasting My Young Years de 31e plaats van de Britse hitlijsten. Nadien is de groep op verschillende festivals, waaronder Lowlands, te zien.

Na een bescheiden succes voor de single Strong, nummer 16 in de Britse singlelijst, wordt het nummer internationaal uitgebracht. Begin februari is het de eerste hit voor London Grammar in de Top 40 die in de zomer wordt opgevolgd door de openingstrack van het album, Hey Now.

Songtekst

Excuse me for a while
While I’m wide-eyed
And I’m so down caught in the middle
I’ve excused you for a while
While I’m wide-eyed
And I’m so down caught in the middle

And a lion
A lion roars
Would you not listen
If a child
A child cries
Would you not forgive them

Yeah, I might seem so strong
Yeah, I might speak so long
I've never been so wrong
Yeah, I might seem so strong
Yeah, I might speak so long
I've never been so wrong

Excuse me for a while
Turn a blind eye
With a stare caught right in the middle
Have you wondered for a while
I have a feeling deep down
You’re caught in the middle

If a lion
A lion roars
Would you not listen
If a child
A child cries
Would you not forgive them

Yeah, I might seem so strong
Yeah, I might speak so long
I've never been so wrong
Yeah, I might seem so strong
Yeah, I might speak so long
I've never been so wrong

Excuse me for a while
While I’m wide-eyed
And I’m so down caught in the middle
Have you wondered for a while
I have a feeling deep down
You’re caught in the middle

Yeah, I might seem so strong
Yeah, I might speak so long
I've never been so wrong
Yeah, I might seem so strong
Yeah, I might speak so long
I've never been so wrong
