Grouplove Announce New Album

GrouploveLos Angeles-based indie darlings, Grouplove, recently released the first single, titled “Ways to Go”, off their upcoming sophomore album, Spreading Rumors. The album is to be released September 17th on Atlantic Records. “Ways to Go” picks up right where Never Trust a Happy Song left off. The track is just as synth poppy, ethereal, and infectious as fans remember the band.

Grouplove took the music world by storm last year with their hits “Tongue Tied” and “Colours” and played major festivals like Bonnaroo in Tennessee and Firefly in Delaware.

The band also released a music video for “Ways to Go” that loosely comments on the totalitarian leadership in North Korea. The video follows a young, Asian boy as he spreads peace and happiness throughout the mansion he lives in by releasing prisoners and inserting flowers into rifles all while wearing a Hawaiian print button-up. Lead singer Christian Zucconi bops around with disheveled hair while wearing a striped t-shirt, similar to the one Kurt Cobain wore in their “Smells Like Teen Spirit” music video, which can be viewed as a “controversial” ode to the king of controversy.

This track oozes with fun and if the rest of the album sounds remotely like “Ways to Go,” it is safe to say that a sophomore slump is not in the cards for Grouplove.
