FEBRUARY 17TH – OLD QUEENS HEAD BIRTHDAY WEEK – GROUPLOVE, CHAD VALLEY & BIG DEAL LIVE
“..produces involuntary squeals in the deepest crevices of your soul” – NME
As part of a week of celebrations at the Old Queens Head for their fifth birthday, we at Oh! Inverted World have the hotly tipped LA band Grouplove headlining on February 17th! Grouplove have already been heavily touted in Nylon Magazine and NME, who featured them in their ‘Best New Bands of 2010’ list. Releasing their debut EP on January 25th, Grouplove are one of the most exciting new bands of 2011 and one of the most hyped bands to ever grace the Oh! Inverted World stage. It was in Crete, in a small remote mountain village at an artist’s commune, that Brooklynites Hannah Hooper and Christian Zucconi met the remaining members of Grouplove. After a summer of bonding and creating passionate music together, the fivesome decided to put all their funds together and move to LA to record their debut album with Ryan Rabin. As you do. Thankfully such an adventurous and endearing venture paid off and they’ve produced one of the most addictively brilliant and uplifting songs we’ve heard in ages with the incredible ‘Colours’. Trust us; you will be chanting the chorus at festivals this summer. So how’s about you catch them early at the intimate Old Queens Head before they become HUGE!
Check out their pretty awesome video for ‘Colours’ right here.
Also on the bill are the also hugely tipped for 2011 Big Deal! As NME put it “Together they’re equal parts awkward and angst, brimming with teenage heartbreak and forbidden love“, which is nice.
Here’s their pretty lovely ‘Homework’
ANNNNNNNNND news just in, bringing the chillwave will be Chad Valley who had just been added to this already incredible line-up! Vice say something particularly emo about our man Hugo “Sounds like that sad moment when you realise how there’s only a week left of summer holidays and next year you’ll be 18” VICE
