Biography

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.

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). In the studio, 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 aired on indie radio stations across North America, Europe and Asia.

They also received support from UK rockers The Joy Formidable, who selected Grand Splendid as the featured artist on their monthly podcast.

The buzz around the release of Grand Splendid’s first EP landed them an invitation to play at the NXNE festival in Toronto. They will continue presenting Numbers throughout the year with shows in Quebec and Ontario.

The band is composed of Julian Buchbinder (lead vocals, guitar), Maxime Arseneau (guitar, vocals), Alex Pilla (bass, keyboards) and Massimo Di Quinzio (drums).

Press:
“Their songs are instantly enjoyable and rather infectious. We are dealing with upbeat and catchy rock that will sit in your head for a very happy chunk of time.” - The Indie Blender

“Not only is their music so impossibly catchy and upbeat, but their ability to compose strong, unique pieces shows promise that they won’t be a one-trick-pony in any future musical endeavors. Numbers is a huge success artistically. With talent like this, Grand Splendid won’t be going away any time soon.”
