Had the pleasure of seeing these guys (and the lovely Hanna!) on a recent NME tour, supporting the equally amazing Anna Calvi. Grouplove were the most energetic and accomplished live act I had seen for some time. This CD is a great reminder of that live gig, but - as with so many other bands - they are a bit better live than in the studio. By that I mean this doesn't quite manage to capture the sheer enthusiasm and joy of a live performance.

Having said that, I really really love the single Colours. Looking forward to hearing how they develop, hopefully getting an opportunity to make a second album. Do go and see them at a festival this Summer - you won't regret getting some serious Grouplove into your life!!

I got this based on a `recommendation', and the samples that I listened to, showed real promise. I am happy to say I have been really blown away (not in a seedy way mind). This is a 6 track e.p. from the five piece new band, and it is a remarkable effort. The opener `Colours' sets the pace and most of the tone; we have jangly guitars, lovely swirling lyrics, and great harmonies.

Track two, `Naked kids' has even got hand claps, which is just great, the mood slows down a bit for `Goldcoast', this has a kind of Okkervil River feel, but is still distinctive enough to be their own, with a driving beat and great catchy hook, it really is note perfect. `Getaway Car', is another great tune, and by this time, I was starting to think I have found the first great summer record of 2011. A word about the lyrics, they are all interesting enough to make you know you have to give repeated listening, to get all the messages and tales that lie within. I do hate clichés like rhyming `dove' with `love' etc. And, am happy to say that Grouplove avoid all that. And it keeps sounding better on subsequent listenings.

They have great backing vocals too and come from Los Angeles, founded by Christian Zucconi and Hannah Hooper (who does all the very nice artwork too!) Track 5 `Don't say oh well' is probably my favourite, because it is just so sunny and they all sound like they are having a ball. Closing track `Get Giddy' is paced and considered and almost feels a bit Americana, but it just rounds off what is a great debut. I really highly recommend, but listen to the samples, and hopefully you too will enjoy this band, who I hope to hear and see much more of.

The first EP from Grouplove is a cracker! They'll surely become one of 2011's big things - if they don't there's no justice in this world.

Perfect pop music, slightly off the wall but can't be missed.

Look out for the forthcoming album too Never Trust a Happy Song. The single Itchin' on a Photograph is for some reason only available for download at the moment. If you can wait until early Sept 2011 it's on the album, otherwise do what I did and buy it now! You can listen to it hereItchin' On A Photograph

Superb piece of sunshine music that is perfect for a summer's day. Kind of like an indie version of the Beach Boys sometimes. Infectious tunes that bring an uplifting mood and make you want to go out and enjoy the sun!
