On September 9th we’ll be treated to Grouplove’s newest album, Big Mess. Following on from Spreading Rumours, Grouplove’s latest release has been hotly anticipated and the news of its imminent arrival has been met with cheers from us here at The Speakeasy! With Big Mess (their third studio album), Christian Zucconi, Hannah Hooper, Andrew Wessen Ryan Rabin and Daniel Gleason once again showcase their unique production style and richly narrated songs.
Grouplove have been cranking out hits like ‘Tongue Tied’ and ‘Colours’ since their first studio album (Never Trust a Happy Song) – and if you think you haven’t heard of them, think again: their music has been featured in commercials, video games, and the intro to the Netflix series BoJack Horseman. This album will be no exception to the band’s dedication to creating catchy tunes, featuring their signature sound of rousing choruses and infectious hooks. But don’t take it from me; check out their first single from the new album, ‘Welcome To Your Life’, here:
They’ve also announced a world tour to coincide with the album’s release. Tour dates and locations are available on their website, and it’s worth noting that for every ticket sold, one dollar will be donated to charity: water to help fund projects and initiatives aimed at providing clean water to communities around the world. With an estimated 783 million people lacking access to clean water (as of 2013), it’s a worthy cause and its great to see a band like Grouplove actively take up a role. Whilst they won’t be making it to NZ this time ’round, be sure to check out the tour dates just in case you happen to be in the right place at the right time!
