Grouplove may have formed in Crete, but they are based in Los Angeles, CA
For a group of five strangers that met each other in Crete, i’d say they make some pretty fine music. Grouplove was formed when the members all befriended one another and realized their similar aspirations to make music while in Greece. Since forming, the band has put together the Grouplove EP and is currently hard at work on their debut album set to release sometime in September. Now September is quite a ways away but I’m perfectly fine with soaking in the bands EP and their first single Colours. I rather enjoy the off centric vocal delivery of lead singer Christian Zucconi and the way it keeps my ears from straying away. You can hear the amount of heart that all of Grouplove puts into their music when listening to Colours and I really love bands with a true passion for what they do. Grouplove are finishing up their UK tour before they switch over to North America where they will be touring with Sifting Pan alumni Walk The Moon. For full tour dates check out their website.
The amount of passion Walk The Moon puts into their music is just so immense. You can hear this dedicated intensity in their single Anna Sun. What starts off as a slow ballad of calling out quickly turns into a full-on indie rock dance scene, complete with a Keytar and everything! This song entrances my imagination and makes me want to go out and celebrate being alive with a smile, andany band that can do that has me sold. Walk The Moon independently put out their debut album I Want! I Want! last November and have expressed intentions of putting out another record soon. From what I’ve listened to from I Want! I Want! I can tell you its full of a variety of different song pacing, but the major reoccurring theme you can look forward to is beautiful synth driven dance rock. Believe me when I tell you Walk The Moon is pretty much my favorite discovery this month.
