Grouplove - Big Mess (2016)

I didn't know much about this LA group before impulsively booking a ticket to see them play at the Electric Ballroom in Camden. 

I warmed to it slightly after listening to it on Tidal one or two times in anticipation of the event. It was ok.

But hey, what do you know - I was absolutely sucker punched by their astounding performance. What a band! What a gig! What a record! Somehow all of these happy clappy pop songs sounded so familiar. They had seeped into my brain. 

I'll definitely be playing this all summer long. My new favorite discovery.
