The fivesome met in 2009 in Avdou, a small Grecian village north of Crete, by way of an artist’s commune that only existed for a single season: “A place that artists could go and not have to worry about the trappings of everyday life — the things that take you away from what makes you creative,” explains Wessen, whose brother founded the colony.As childhood friends and plateauing musicians, Wessen and Rabin both made the trip from L. Hooper, an artist, and Zucconi, a guitarist slash bartender slash commercial truck driver, flew from New York just days after meeting.Hooper met Zucconi in Manhattan because she enjoyed his music.Hooper invited Zucconi to an artist residency in Crete, despite having only just met.I was playing the song “Enlighten Me” just like solo and the whole crowd sang the chorus as loud anything I’ve ever heard before, so it was really special to know it is translating and people are digging it.

“I don’t want to be that girl,” Hannah Hooper sighs, “but I kind of don’t feel like taking my sunglasses off.” Hooper and her bandmates in Grouplove, Christian Zucconi (guitar, vocals), Andrew Wessen (guitar, vocals), Sean Gadd (bass, vocals) and Ryan Rabin (drums), have been churning through interviews in the auroral corporate lounge of Atlantic Records’ midtown offices for the better part of the day and are noticeably punchy.They are better known for their songs, "Tongue Tied" and "Ways To Go".Formation: All five members were friends prior to the band.But it wasn’t the time of day (3pm) nor the sugar high slump from the bowl of candy on the table (formerly brimming with Tootsie Rolls and Red Hots) or even the fact that the night before we spoke, they’d successfully slayed a joyful crowd in Prospect Park, Brooklyn while sheets of rain swept viciously across the stage.It was hard to get a straight answer out of Grouplove because they’re all so intrinsically in sync that a single person’s response often turned into a collective run-on sentence — a verbal game of ping pong where one fleeting word could spark a breathless backhand and finish in a different court entirely.He joined her, and there they met the rest of the band. Music Career: In 2010, the band went on tour with Florence And The Machine on the west coast, and later with The Joy Formidable on the east coast.
