IT_ I Granada sono un gruppo rock di Roma, nato dall’iniziativa di Fabio Mangiatordi e Alessio Corasaniti nel 2008. La formazione attuale è composta dai due fondatori con Gianfilippo Bonafede al basso e Lorenzo D’Angella alla batteria. La band esordisce nel 2009 con una demo composta di 3 brani in lingua inglese e inizia la propria attività live in tanti importanti locali della capitale. Dopo le prime esperienze live e le prime incisioni la band si mette al lavoro sul suo EP di debutto "No way out" inciso nel marzo del 2012. A risaltare è l'impronta anni '90 che caratterizza tutte e quattro le tracce del lavoro: "Lunar express", "No way out", "Change" e "Unhappy ending". Il lavoro, apprezzato da varie webzines quali Musicoff e Zimbalam, ha permesso ai Granada di aprire i concerti dei Motel Connection, progetto parallelo di Samuel Romano (Subsonica) e nel 2013 con la band norvegese Bol&Snah di Hans Magnus Ryan (Motorpsycho).

EN_ Granada is an Italian pop rock band from Rome. Fabio Mangiatordi (vocals, guitar), Alessio Corasaniti (vocals, guitar), Gianfilippo Bonafede (bass, backing vocals), and Lorenzo D’Angella (drums)formed the band in 2008. They developed a following in Rome after their first recorded demo, and released their debut E.P.“No Way Out” in 2012. “No Way Out” was successful and brought Granada to perform across the Italian peninsula. They opened for Motel Connection—Samuel Romano’s (Subsonica) second band—countless times and also performed alongside Hans Magnus Ryan’s (Motorpsycho) Bol & Snah. Granada will release its debut album “Silence Gets Louder” in early 2017.

IT_ All'inizio del 2017 è prevista l’uscita dell’album autoprodotto “Silence Gets Louder” contenente 9 brani, registrato da Marco Compagnucci e mixato - masterizzato da Daniele Gennaretti. In questo disco è evidente il percorso di crescita dei Granada e la scelta di un impronta rock-pop. Il lavoro della band è stato quello di creare veri e propri muri sonori, dove la potenza è affiancata ad atmosfere dense di riverberi e contaminazioni elettroniche. Il singolo di lancio è la terza traccia del disco: “Breakthrough” per la quale è stato realizzato un video musicale ideato dalla stessa band e diretto da Lorenzo D’Angella, con interpreti Liliana Fiorelli e Antonello Morelli.

EN_Granada will release its debut album "Silence Gets Louder" in early 2017. The album’s nine tracks will span from indie to new wave. Granada’s songs are known for being linear, but with a sophisticated and layered overall sound. The record begins with loads of thundering guitars and loud drums that contrasts its floating and ecstatic reverbs, and then changes to a complex ethereal atmosphere with a pinch of dark and vibrant electronic beats. “Breakthrough” is the first single and the third track of the album “Silence gets louder”. A music video has been made for the song, conceived by the band and directed by Lorenzo D’Angella, casting Liliana Fiorelli and Antonello Morelli.

Granada Band Rome

Smile
Open up your heart
let me slip inside
Such determination always tries to turn the tide
Open up your arms
let me dive into
the big blue
I wanna be like you
your smile
lights up the room
Open up your heart
let me slip inside
All the flagellation always helps the ghost to hide
I wanna be like you
your smile
lights up the room

Breakthrough
Nothing is what it seems
I'm sick and tired
Someone will still believe
The words of a liar
What I wanna do
I want to breakthrough
I think it's the best thing
It's worth trying
A spark is all I need
I'm on fire
Nothing is what it seems
It's confidential
Breaking news on tv
Big brother nomination
What I wanna do
I want to breakthrough
I think it's the best thing
It's worth trying
A spark is all I need
I'm on fire

Angel
I'm your angel
I come from your head
this is my answer
I like the end
Speaking with others
in my mind
I cannot save you
please don't cry
I see it coming
through your bones
I see the rain
It's coming down
it's hot as hell
in this room
I cannot save you
I'll fall in you.

The Sky is falling in
I could wait for a thousand years 
Don't care about the pain 
Don't care about the tears
Something has to happen 
Something has to move
Alone in a dark room
A glare passing through
Summer sky
Above our heads
A piece of it
Fell in our hands
And now, and now
It's all gone
As winter comes along
Unless you'll forget...
Fog in our eyes
Nothing left to see
There's a void in between, 
Between you and me
Summer sky
Above our heads
A piece of it
Fell in our hands
And now, and now
It's all gone
As winter comes along
Unless...
Just need to shout
To scream your name loud
Loud, out loud!

Granada Gruppo Musicale

Feel the breeze
How I'd want it to be
Forever
For no real reason
Honey
It's never too much
Never enough
Just with a touch, that
will never be rough.
I feel the breeze
As the heart beats
So strong and clean
Down to my feet
How I'd want it to be
Forever
For no real reason
Honey
It's like in a dream
So hard to believe
Where codes and schemes
Burst gradually!
I feel the breeze
As the heart beats
So strong and clean
Down to my feet

Siren
"Such a misery
What is happening!"
Blame it on yourself
Or blame it on someone else!
You're scaring the poor child,
A reaction to your smile.
In a land where no one cares,
Watch where you put your steps...
And then at the end of this
What remains?
A siren will always play
but plays invane.
So close, so far away!
You clearly taste their pain.
In a time where no one cares,
We just sit and stare.
And then at the end of this
What remains?
A siren will always play
plays invane.
We just steal their hopes for nothing!
And then at the end of this
What remains?
And then at the end of this
What remains?

Miracles
Not even a sound down the hall
Silence gets louder as I go on
Just a letter on our bed
Couldn't read it cause you weren't there
fall on my knees 
Like autumn leaves
I'm on my knees
God help me please
Miracles don't come for free I guess
there's no way,
no chance to see you one last time 
All the paintings on our walls
The color came out from them all 
A static light
right through my eyes
A static light
it blows my mind
Miracles aren't black and white I guess
there's no way,
no chance for me to realize,
that Miracles aren't black and white I guess
there's no way,
no chance to see you one last time

I can take care of you
I am a broken toy
for a lonely girl
Please take me away too
So I can take care of you
but only if you want
I'm strong enough to carry you
Because I loved you so much
Because I loved you for so long
In the city of the sun you go
In the summer of the stars
She's light
There is a mountain in the dark of my mind
