World Cafe welcomes British trio London Grammar to WXPN's studios for Thursday's session. Vocalist Hannah Reid, guitarist Dan Rothman and multi-instrumentalist Dot Major initially met in 2009 as students at University of Nottingham.

London Grammar released its debut EP, Metal & Dust, in February; its full-length debut, If You Wait, followed in September. The album, with its trip-hop-influenced sound, peaked at No. 2 on the British charts. In the midst of a subdued and poignant live set, London Grammar's members tell an amusing story about how they first came together.
