London Grammar Cover Miley Cyrus’ ‘Wrecking Ball’

Subscribe to PopCrush on

Are you ready for yet another cover of ‘Wrecking Ball’?

Following the wacky Chatroulette version you wished you didn’t see, newcomers London Grammar take on the song — taking it to a whole new place with their ambient, moody take. Their haunting version is definitely worth checking out.

The British trio performed the Miley Cyrus ballad for the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge, the venue for so many wonderful covers before — including Miley’s amazing version of a Lana Del Rey track!

Using all the melancholy of the original, London Grammar’s cover doesn’t come in like a wrecking ball in the least, instead seeping into your skin with its spare keyboard and guitar accompaniment by Dot Major and Dan Rothman. Frontwoman Hannah Reid is oft compared with Florence Welch, and her flawless vocals here show exactly why that is.

London Grammar’s debut album ‘If You Wait,’ featuring single ‘Strong,’ was released this fall. They head out on a U.S. tour in the spring. Check out their full dates here.
