Grouplove, the Los Angeles band that broke out in a major way with 2011 hit song, “Tongue Tied,” have returned with “Ways to Go,” the first single from the band’s forthcoming album, Spreading Rumors, which is set for release on September 17.
The catchy and dynamic new song brings more of Grouplove’s signature infectious energy, this time married to an uplifting synth-pop groove that’s sure to become a summer 2013 feel-good anthem. Diehard fans who’ve seen the band in concert may already be familiar with the tune, as it’s been making regular appearances on Grouplove set lists in recent months.
“Ways To go” “came magically” to the band during the album’s recording session in an “old Motown house” in the Hollywood Hills explained frontman Christian Zucconi in an interview. “We just kinda ran with it the night it came together… and really got excited about it and it just kinda surprised us. “
To accompany the song, the band produced a fun video featuring a young Kim Jong-un spreading peace while dancing Gangnam style.
2013 has already been a busy year for Grouplove, with the band performing at a slew of music festivals, including the first BottleRock Napa Valley fest and the Hangout festival in Alabama.
