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.
Don't miss the album launch show on Wednesday, February 5th at La Tulipe!
