A French electro-rock band, Grand Blanc, will perform in concert at Canton Place this week. Affected by new wave music, the group's lyrics embody a dark pop aura. The release earlier this year of Grand Blanc's debut album," Mémoires Vives," proved a success and launched the Band on an international tour.
After releasing its debut EP - 4 tracks that showcased the band’s dark and captivating universe - Grand Blanc quickly became one of France’s new groups to be reckoned with, alongside La Femme, Christine and the Queens and Fauve. "Mémoires Vives” is a bewitching and epic ride, mixing new wave sounds with white noises and raging guitars. Above all, it’s the sensual voices of singers Benoit and Camille that make the young French band so distinctive. Line-up
