Lovely Cup

Never Trust A Happy Song. Yeah, that’s my motto. It’s also the title of Grouplove’s first album. A title I suspect is a bit of a joke, given that Grouplove is known for being peppy and energetic. They’re not an angsty band, in contrast to a lot of alt and indie people. There does seem to be a trend on indie radio for exuberant pop rock like Grouplove’s, which makes for a nice sea change from the emo years. While no one has emerged into real superstar status yet, it feels hopeful that some of these many promising bands will coalesce into a long-lasting unit with real artistic vision. This one is one to watch.
