grouplove first came to my attention back in 2011 after hearing their song tongue tied on one of those notorious apple ipod adverts, and since then it's been nothing but happy listening. a month or so back i decided to check out if the band had been up to much since their debut album, and to my delight they'd released a new album back in 2013 that had totally slipped under my radar. after a couple of listens via youtube i was well and truly hooked and quickly made sure to add the album to my itunes.
now, i'm terrible at talking about music so i'm not going to attempt to talk about the albums, but what i will say is that both albums are perfect for summertime listening, so it came as no surprise to me to learn that the band are from sunny los angeles. whether i'm out walking ziggy, driving around with my windows down or just chilling out in the sunshine, their music seems to go hand in hand with soaking up the sun in a pair of sandals and sunglasses. their music's mainly upbeat and energetic, and i think it marries so well with the warm weather for me because the summertime fills me with the same energy, motivation and happiness that their music seems to hold.
i'll not babble on for any longer and let you have a listen and decide whether or not they're for you. i'd personally say that if you're into stuff along the lines of foster the people and crystal fighters, you'll probably have a soft spot for grouplove, too. if you do like what you hear, please feel free to nip round with a deck chair and some fruity cider and i'll happy sit out in the sun listening along with you!
