The Grand have produced an album based on complex love stories and I'm hooked. Leeds Music Scene


It is a big, bold and adventurous record. Dealing as it does in the lyrical currencies of loss, loneliness and regret, 'Incapacitated, Ill Fated, and In Love' explores the darker side of love. Musically it rakes about in the ashes of post-punk, power pop, Americana and art-rock before salvaging from that debris an irresistible cocktail of sound. God Is In The TV
 

This is a truly impressive first album. The songs are, without exception, relentless; impassioned and powerful. Rhubarb Bomb

This is a more than fine pop/indie/rock album that deserves to be heard by the masses, I hope this is the case because The Grand have released an album that should be featured in all of those end of year album polls. Louder Than War

The best piece of music you will listen to this year. Vibrations Magazine

Incapacitated, Ill Fated, and In Love is a strong album that shows off the band’s distinctive sound and deserves your very serious attention. Glossy Onions

The Grand will without a doubt find success with this album, and the rest of us will find the 'something new' music we have been waiting for. Fair Feature

Lyrics that any songwriter would die to try and write. The Grand have produced a masterpiece here in how to write one class song after another. Alpha Beata

Incapacitated an album full of big ideas but with a thoughtful attention to detail that means you won't get everything that's in it on first listen. It's a record that's bound to get them compared to the early works of The National. As like so many great records, it's not easy listening, it reveals more every time that you listen to it and the more you focus on it. Even The Stars

The Grand have a sound of the melodic, infectious, intelligent and irresistible synergy between three people who are quite obviously meant to be making music together. Lead vocalist and bassist, Russ Smith has, quite simply, the most unique voice in popular music since John Fogerty. Incapacitated, Ill-fated and In Love is a complex, engaging and thought provoking work that will have you returning for another hit, another crack at peeling back the layers. Phil Greenwood Photography
 
The Grand also support British Sea Power at Unity Works on Friday 12th June as part of Long Division Festival.
