Local 913, Episode 11 - Grand Bell
Formerly known as Race The Ghost, the Pittsburgh indie-rock quartet Grand Bell is made up of two sets of brothers who have known each other since childhood. Vincent and Benjamin Bruni and Frank and Mike Salati have been in bands together since middle school, which explains the great chemistry shared on their new, self-titled album. Grand Bell is prime example of a great Pittsburgh rock band: four best friends who grew up together making music as kids and are still doing it as adults. The album ranges from crunchy, electric "Built To Spill" riffs to melodic Jeff Buckley and U2 guitars. As the band puts it, “It is the unfamiliar sound in the middle of the night that keeps you awake and entices you to get closer.” The song “Mess of My Life” from the new album acts like an anthem that mixes all three of those afore mentioned influences.
