Californian Soil is the third studio album by English indie pop band London Grammar, released on 16 April 2021 by Metal & Dust and Ministry of Sound.

It was initially intended to be released on 12 February 2021, but was postponed for unknown reasons.[1]

Californian Soil was preceded by four singles—"Baby It's You", the title track, "Lose Your Head" and "How Does It Feel".

Composition

Vocalist Hannah Reid said the album deals with themes of feminism and fame. She wrote:

"This record is about gaining possession of my own life. You imagine success will be amazing. Then you see it from the inside and ask, 'Why am I not controlling this thing? Why am I not allowed to be in control of it? And does that connect, in any way to being a woman? If so, how can I do that differently?'".[2]

Release

The album was announced on 1 October 2020, alongside the release of the title track. The band said the track was a "turning point" for them, deciding to name the album after the song.

On 5 January 2021, the band posted on their Twitter page that the release date had been postponed to 9 April of that same year, before being subsequently pushed back to 16 April. No reason was given for either delay.[3]

Californian Soil received mostly positive reviews from critics upon release. On Metacritic, which assigns a normalised score out of 100 to ratings from publications, the album received a weighted mean score of 77 based on 10 reviews, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[8] Christopher Hamilton-Peach of The Line of Best Fit scored the album 9 out of 10 and said that "London Grammar use Californian Soil to hone their lush sonics and embrace the future".[11]

The Guardian's Alim Kheraj scored the album 3 stars, stating that "the British trio stick to boilerplate emoting and bland imagery, but there are small sonic steps forward".[12] Writing for Pitchfork, Hannah Jocelyn wrote that "the UK electronic-pop trio's third album draws on a renewed sense of extroversion and energy, which can't always overcome its lyrical and production missteps", giving the album 6.2 out of 10.[13] Praising the album's surrealist sound and tone, The Daily Telegraph's Neil McCormick said that the album was "hypnotically compelling".[14] However, Slant Magazine's Charles Lyons-Burt felt that "the band's willingness to harness the latest sonic trends is hit and (mostly) miss."[15]

London Grammar ist eine aus den drei Mitgliedern Hannah Reid, Dominic „Dot“ Major und Dan Rothman bestehende britische Indie-Pop-Band.

Geschichte

Sängerin Reid (* 30. Dezember 1989) und Gitarrist Rothman (* 23. September 1989), beide ursprünglich aus London stammend, lernten sich im Studentenwohnheim der University of Nottingham kennen. 2009 gründeten sie London Grammar und traten zunächst nur als Coverband auf. Nachdem Schlagzeuger Major (* 23. Februar 1991) zur Gruppe hinzugestoßen war, entstanden die ersten eigenen Songs. Es folgten weitere lokale Auftritte vor zumeist kleinem Publikum, die Band blieb jedoch noch weitgehend unbekannt.

Sängerin Hannah Reid

Im Dezember 2012 veröffentlichten die drei Musiker im Internet ihre erste Single Hey Now, mit der ihnen der Durchbruch gelang. Im Februar 2013 kam die EP Metal & Dust auf den Markt. Mit der Single Wasting My Young Years erreichte die Band im Juni 2013 erstmals die britischen Charts. Das Debütalbum If You Wait erschien am 9. September 2013.

Das zweite Album Truth Is a Beautiful Thing erschien am 9. Juni 2017. Im November 2017 veröffentlichten London Grammar auf dem Album BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge 2017 eine Coverversion von dem Prince-Song Purple Rain.
