When the members of Grouplove met it was like a dream. The setting was a remote artist colony on the exotic, mysterious Greek island of Crete.
Drummer / producer Ryan Rabin and his childhood friend and former bandmate, guitarist Andrew Wessen came from California, while guitarist Christian Zucconi and keyboarist Hannah Hooper traveled from New York, whereby bassist Sean Gadd was the lone Brit.
Each member went to Greece for their own independent reasons but over time they gravitated towards each other and discovered the sound that unified them: a merging of richly narrated, intricate songs with anthemic classic pop production. It took Grouplove the better part of a year to reunite after they left the island, but after the release their debut album entitled ‘Never Trust A Happy Song’, they’ve realised what began as a fantasy has now become very real.
