CD Review: Grouplove Is "Spreading" The Word About Their New Album

From New York comes the latest album from the underground electronic rock/pop of Grouplove. Their new album "Spreading Rumours" debuted at #21 on the Billboard Album chart when it was released back in September. Their sound is very new and fresh with hints of eighties modern rock and bits of garage rock grunge to give their music an edge.
The album begins with the up and down tempo of "I'm With You" lead by a rapid, almost electronic drumbeat and keyboard overtones. The grungy guitars come out blazing on the alternative pop of "Borderlines And Aliens" as their music keeps the tempo going on "Schoolboy." The album's lead single "Ways To Go" draws upon the past as it carries very retro electronic eighties sound. The band also shows off their modern side on the folk-rock of "Sit Still" and the Weezer clone "What I Know." The album closes with the Violent Femmes' sounding rocker "Raspberry" and the feel-good relaxation of "Save The Party."
Grouplove will be finishing the year on tour in the U.S. before heading over to Australia at the beginning of 2014. To find out more about Grouplove and their latest album, "Spreading Rumours," please visit
