GROUPLOVE :: "Itchin' On A Photograph"

GROUPLOVE's Atlantic/Canvasback LP will be out later this summer with lead single, "Itchin' On A Photograph" due June 19th. If we recall all the way back to the band's first single, "Colours" when there were only a few of us writing about this curious little LA outfit with the big song and the sticky hooks, it was 13-months ago and even then they seemed destined for this type of break out. "Itchin' On A Photograph" is rooted in a simple downward progression, some hand claps and, most importantly, Christian Zucconi's soaring vocal, one of those busting-the-veins-in-your-neck, half-screams that takes us to the top of the room and stays there. This is the summer where a ton of kids who have no idea who this band is will learn of and then love them. This is the summer where you, if you've been with them since last spring, will need to stick by the band because their ethic has always been about communal understanding of affection. It will be a season of the more the merrier. This is, as always, just the start of something and the end of something else.
