“All My Love” by London Grammar

London Grammar’s “All My Love” is one of those types of lyrical situations where it would just be best to resort to the singer herself in terms of understanding the song’s meaning. And in this case, based on an explanation provided by London Grammar frontwoman Hannah Reid, this track is “about falling in love”.

But also, there’s “a bit of darkness in there” – a concept which sort of serves as a subplot of the band’s “Californian Soil” album.

The said “darkness” would explain why, despite this being a love song, Hannah unorthodoxly refers to ‘shadows’ and such in the first verse. 

But the second verse would be more indicative of her actual feelings for the addressee. And considering that the chorus consists exclusively of the phrase “all my love” being repeated, even if the first verse seems out of place the intended sentiment comes through nonetheless.

So ultimately this is in fact a love song. But it seems that, at least at this point in their professional trajectory, London Grammar is not compelled to just drop a straight-up positive track like that. Instead, some of the more troubling aspects of the relationships must be acknowledged also.
