Lesibu Grand (pronounced Le-SEE-boo Grand) is an indie-pop band from Atlanta that grew out of a songwriting partnership between singer Tyler-Simone Molton and bassist John Renaud. The band takes its influences from the NYC new wave scene, particularly Blondie, The B-52s and The Go Gos, and from 90s rockers such as Pixies and Green Day. Distinguished by Tyler-Simone’s warmer, ethereal vocal style, Lesibu Grand fuses these two strains into a refreshingly modern sound in songs that explore the unexpected joys, sharp anxieties, and beguiling mysteries that abound us all. Lesibu Grand has performed at AfroPunk Fest, SXSW, Punk Black Fest and Hulaween, and been featured in Brooklyn Vegan, Alternative Press, Under The Radar, and Paste Magazine. Their music has been played on KEXP, WEQX, and KTCL’s Punk Tacos.
