Rock band Grand Splendid hail from Montreal and are excited to be on the local indie scene. Their upfront electric guitar sounds and soothing vocal melodies are attracting the attention of indie music lovers.
Grand Splendid is composed of Julian Buchbinder (lead vocals, guitar), Maxime Arseneau (guitar, vocals), Alex Pilla (bass, keyboards) and Daniel Poupart (drums).
They recently released their first EP Numbers, which was engineered by Maxime Audet-Halde (Doba Caracol) and mastered by Ryan Morey (Arcade Fire, The Stills, Sam Roberts). The band's musical exploration went beyond their guitar-driven sound, adding new textures with vintage keyboards, a pump organ and layered vocal harmonies.
Their singles, Hopeless and Energy, have been featured on several indie radio stations across North America, Europe and Asia.
Grand Splendid will continue presenting their EP Numbers and some other new songs during their shows in Montreal and other Canadian cities throuout the year, including a showcase at the NXNE festival in Toronto.
