The Grails are a loud alt-rock band hailing from Vancouver, Canada. Formed and fronted by singer-songwriter Scotland Hurst since the spring of 2003 – the band has since been establishing a local reputation
for delivering tight, dynamic & accessible songs through incendiary, off-the-cuff live performances at venues such as The Media Club, Roxy Cabaret, The Pic, Purple Onion & The Showroom.
The sound has been described as “an urgent and visceral, focused and deliberate mixture of both the raw & the pop - gnashing, fuzzed & rough-hewn enough for the indie-rock listener, yet hook-laden and polished enough to respect the dynamics & pedigree of great pop music structure”.
The 7-song debut Ep has been independently self-released, received continued on-air support from the Indie Night In Canada segment of Vancouver’s CFOX radio (99.3FM) and has garnered press in The Georgia Straight Weekly.
