We're back for a very important cause!
Our outdoor concert on September 1st is in support of the West Island Assistance Fund.

Belgrave is currently on a music writing hiatus!

We'll be back in 2013 but keep an eye out for us to make a quick appearance this fall.
Thanks for everyone's support!
We're super excited to take part in the January 12 Blue Skies Turn Black event. Aside from sharing the stage with two great bands in The Darcys and Receivers, Pietro Amato brings his French Horn genius to real life for the first time since the recording studio. Come check us out as we take the stage first at 9:00pm (doors 8:30pm). Get your tickets early HERE.
Perhaps the most fitting introduction to Belgrave comes at the very end of the Montreal quintet’s debut EP, in the final seconds of Six Minutes. Where other bands might milk every drip of drama from a surging crescendo, this one has the discipline to release its tension in a breathless burst. That less-is-more aesthetic defines each of the EP’s six tracks, from the staccato guitar in Heart Strings to Distance’s submarine bass and subtle martial percussion. The arty spirit behind the latter’s arrangement would be worth exploring further, but even at its most conventional, Belgrave has a taut sense of drama to balance its melodic economy. Production by Joseph Donovan (Sam Roberts, the Dears) and contributions by French horn player Pietro Amato (Arcade Fire, the Luyas) offer the blue-ribbon credentials this band deserves.
Rating: 3.5 out of 5
Jordan Zivitz - Montreal Gazette
"...they also craft a decent pop song full of the romance and drama of bands like Patrick Watson and the Dears."
"Fresh out of Montreal, the Canadian band Belgrave continues the track record of luscious, expansive indie pop from north of the border."
Paper Garden Record
"Canadian outfit, Belgrave, is blowing my mind with "Six Minutes," a huge chamber pop track"
"We can't wait to see these guys (and girl) live someday! Lets just hope that they will cross the Atlantic to play on this side of the world"
Front Stage Music
"art-pop with bright catchy melodies"
Thanks to director Justin Durocher and videographer David Demers for the awesome music video!
