Grouplove released its debut album, Never Trust a Happy Song, on September 13, 2011, the 4 singles from the album were “Colours” which was featured in the games Madden NFL 12, FIFA 12, and MLB 2K12, "Tongue Tied" went on to score the band a number 1 on the US Alternative Chart and was featured in several commercials including one for the Apple iPod Touch, and one for Coca-Cola, the song has since been certified Platinum, “Lovely Cup” and “Itchin On A Photograph” went to top 10 at Modern Rock radio and was featured on the NASCAR The Game: Inside Line.
Never Trust a Happy Song peaked at number 75 on the Billboard 200 and number 12 in Australia. Allmusic praised the album, saying, “Ultimately, Grouplove's Never Trust a Happy Song is a cohesive if ramshackle crowd-pleaser, full of melodic double-lead vocals, hand claps, ringing electric guitars, and staccato synth parts that tips a hat to '80s dance-rock while still retaining the band's obvious love of experimental '60s folk-rock.”
Grouplove are singer and guitarist Christian Zucconi, singer and keyboardist Hannah Hooper, singer and guitarist Andrew Wessen, bass guitarist Daniel Gleason, and drummer Benjamin Homola. They have five Studio albums, with their latest, This Is This, released in March 2021.
