After meeting and playing together while at an art residency in Greece, the members of Grouplove decided to keep playing together. The band pooled their resources and convened in Los Angeles to record an EP — a joyous collection of focused pop songs.

The band has since officially relocated to L.A., consistently touring with larger acts like Florence and the Machine, as well as supporting fellow underground champions Foster the People. Much like their eponymous debut, Grouplove's SXSW set from Mellow Johnny's Bike Shop, broadcast live on KEXP, was a raucous, soaring affair featuring lively renditions of standouts "Don't Say Oh Well," "Naked Kids" and "Colours."
