I saw a article in SPIN the other day and Dodge also posted on these guys so I thought I would check 'em out. Grand National members both started in cover bands before joining up to do some writing on their own. When Rupert was able to work in some studio time through a conncetion with Primal Scream, the duo was off and running, producing their first single "Playing in the Distance". While most songs sound like they are backed by a full band, it is really just the two of them
kicking out the laid back party and funk beats sound like a LCD Soundsystem. I could definitely see 'Drink To Moving On' making a appearance on the OC or in some EA game down the road.
Their album is just making it's way state-side after being out in the UK since 2004 so maybe some new stuff will be available soon.
