”The next Kaiser Chiefs – with the right backing they’ll be massive” Thomas H Green – Q Magazine / The Telegraph

The Splendour was formed by respected Brighton muso Justin Gourlay, intent on making snappy chunky indie rock songs for the masses to enjoy. Together with John Crick (Guitar) and Greg Houghton (Bass) and with this their debut album recorded with Dan Swift, producer of Kasabian, Art Brut and Aqualung, they are succeeding in their quest.

With the first single Audio the band was Emma Scott’s Ones To Watch on Kerrang! Radio, Fresh Meat on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show and played at The Great Escape Festival. This their second single Money is released July 21st and the band have already attracted high praise from the UK press. This groove driven dancefloor filler builds to a triumphant hands-in-the-air chorus that will crack a smile at even the most serious of clubs.

Money is their next single and will be released on July 28th. This full throttle piece of indie rock is accompanied by the characteristic splendour hooks with an added horn section in the mix. You can watch the video below.

Their debut album The Best Way To Make Money is being released with the backing of ILS (Independent Label Scheme) – the new venture from Catskills founder Jonny Reggae and top music lawyer Dean Marsh - which gives the band the infrastructure to release the album on their own Tinyclan imprint while providing experienced record label backing. The debut album is out August 4th. In the meantime, catch the band live as they play the following dates on their UK tour.
