Thank you for the most fun I’ve had listening to an album in years, Grouplove. You totally ear-hugged me and I loved every bit of it.
Your self-titled EP reminds me of those wonderful summer one hit wonder songs like Len’s “Steal My Sunshine” and “Drinking in LA” by Bran Van 3000. And my insides smile when I listen to the words to “Naked Kids.””
“Back corner table order lobsters and Black Label / raise your glasses here’s to living out our dreams.”
If you’re eating lobster you shouldn’t be drinking Black Label, though. That stuff is for hobos and college kids. Oh wait I get it…you’re being sarcastic. Awwwww. LOL!
My favorite songs on the EP (other than “Naked Kids”) are “Don’t Say Oh Well”, “Get Giddy”, “Gold Coast”, and “Colours”. So pretty much all six of them. The band’s harmonies remind me of The Beach Boys, but the music reminds me of the Cave Singers and that is super awesome in my book.
Grouplove, your music is just so fun to be around and super sweet. Have a cool summer, Dudes! – (10/10)
