You may not know the name Grouplove, an indie rock group from California, but there is a very good chance you know the music. Their songs have been featured in the movies The Fault in Our Stars, Blended, and Project Almanac. They have also graced multiple video games, including Madden NFL 12, FIFA 12, MLB 2K12, and NASCAR The Game: Inside Line.
Their biggest hit song, “Tongue Tied,” reached #1 on the Modern Rock charts, and in 2012 was featured in an iPod Touch commercial. It was also performed by the cast of the TV show Glee.
The band formed in Los Angeles in 2009 and, after being signed to Canvasback/Atlantic Records, released their first full length album, Never Trust a Happy Song, two years later. In 2013, they released their second album, Spreading Rumours.
