KEXP at Trans Musicales: Grand Parc

photo by Morgan Chosnyk

Today, we continue sharing our discoveries from the Trans Musicales festival in Rennes, France, where last December we captured twelve exclusive sessions. We’re sharing with you one unique session per week, and you can watch all the previously release ones here. This week’s feature is of Grand Parc.

DJ Morgan says of the experience:

The day wrapped up with a fantastic band out of Normandy, France, called Grand Parc. Founding members Nick and Annie, who both play guitar and sing, plus Jean-Baptiste on bass and Guillame on drums, played an extremely skillful set of shoegaze-math rock-French pop. They had elements of Stereolab, Pinback, Blonde Redhead, and Foals, all while sounding completely fresh and original. Fun fact: I counted 22 effects pedals between them all. I don’t know what they all do, but they must know how to use them all effectively because they sounded awesome. Definitely a new favorite!

Watch our live session Grand Parc, recorded at Hôtel Pasteur, an historic building converted to an art space, and be sure to find more about the band on their Facebook and Bandcamp pages.
