WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT: Debut EP sets the stage for the indie pop / rock groups success, and their side gig on TV commercials.
SOME WORDS, PHRASES AND CLAUSES ABOUT THIS RECORD: If there was a modern group made for providing backing music for TV commercials, it’s probably Grouplove.
They’re tuneful, positive, and quirky. Hannah Hooper and Christian Zucconi’s voices blend together in an appealing way, and while the music isn’t outre, it’s different enough to stand out. The big thing are the hooks – big, bold and tuneful.
This six song EP is a great start for the band, and my gosh “Naked Kids” gets in your head and doesn’t let go.
NOTES & MINUTIAE: “Getaway Car” was licensed to HBO.
IS THERE A DELUXE VERSION: No
