London Grammar correct their road to success

Hannah Reid, Dan Rothman and Dominic 'Dot' Major of London Grammar talk about their sophomore album, Truth is a Beautiful Thing.
London Grammar's latest album is entitled Truth Is A Beautiful Thing (Ministry Of Sound/Metal & Dust)

London Grammar's debut album If You Wait sold over 2 million copies worldwide, becoming one of the biggest U.K. acts almost instantaneously. But that success came with a steep price — exhaustion and stage fright almost derailed the group.

However, they made it through the hard times because of the strong bond of friendship among the three members and now they're back with their sophomore album, Truth is a Beautiful Thing.

Hannah Reid, Dan Rothman and Dominic "Dot" Major of the group perform "Rooting for You" and "Oh Woman, Oh Man" from their new album and talk with Tom Power about the pressures of sudden success.
