the grand – cd review

Recovering from ‘flu, so no live music for me. Instead, a CD review:

A few weeks back at the headKASE festival, I saw the excellent Chiléan indie group The Grand. I obtained a copy of their first EP (also called The Grand, as far as I can tell).

Loverevo: probably my favourite track, reminiscent of Franz Ferdinand, a mid-tempo, guitarry paeon to love’n’lust.

Kiss You: roller-coastering through emotions, a genuine musing on  yearning.

Come Now: a slower-tempo take on loss and separation, touching.

Janet Brunette: a pop-art, catchy tune with a Beatles-esque feel and darker undertones in the lyrics.

Let’s Keep it Physical: an energetic, drum-fuelled track, an emphatic full stop which left me wanting more.

Five upbeat, accessible indie tracks, in fact a great summer-time listen, definitely worth getting a copy.

Their second EP is out now, I’ll be reviewing it soon.

Check them out on MySpace.
