Grouplove’s Christian Zucconi

When it came time to put together my annual Top Ten Albums of the Year for The Sound Magazine one album immediately jumped into my head. It was the album that I had been listening to non-stop since being introduced to it back in September. That album was Spreading Rumours by GROUPLOVE. The album is filled with single-worthy tracks that get you up, bring you down, chill you out and get you thinking. What’s different about this band and this album is that not every song sounds the same. In fact, you can make the argument that a lot of the tracks on Spreading Rumours sound like a completely different band entirely. The record plays like a movie soundtrack from the 90’s and I mean that in the best way possible. Recently I got to chat with Christian Zucconi, the lead male vocalist of the band who shares singer/songwriter duties with his female counterpart Hannah Hooper. Spreading Rumours ended up at #2 on my Top Ten Albums of the Year list but to be fair, depending on the minute or the hour or the day of the week, any of the top three on that list are my favorite at any given time. It was a great year for music. Christian and I chat about making this awesome record, what separates it from their debut LP, how the band is dealing with success and what to expect from them in 2014. Follow the band on twitter @Grouplove and be sure to check them out when they come to your city for a live show that is not to be missed!
