Monogrenade will perform during the 26th edition of Les FrancoFolies de Montréal! Two years after their last show at the festival, the band will play at the Gesù on June 13th. Dive into the captivating universe of their new album Composite, released on February 4th.
Out of the celestials comes Composite, Monogrenade’s second project, is available now via Bonsound (digital / cd / vinyl). Purchase the album via the band’s bandcamp.
Pushing the electro aspect of their sound, the band makes good use of old synths and a Linn Drum. French horn player Pietro Amato (Arcade Fire, The Luyas, Bell Orchestre) adds an organic feel to many songs while Marie-Pierre Arthur’s vocals beautifully complement Jean-Michel’s on Labyrinthe. Composed by Monogrenade and string quartet Mommies on the Run (Patrick Watson, Karkwa, Ariane Moffatt), the string arrangements surround the eclectic pop style, creating a profound, coherent album.
