Grouplove released a new song “Traumatized” off their upcoming third album Big Mess today (August 25).
The intro has a slightly more punk rock feel guitar-wise before things take off toward a poppier vibe for the chorus. “Traumatized” grows quiet on the bridge, as Christian Zucconi sing-whispers, “And I just want to tell you, my mother was traumatized/ Yeah, I just want to tell you, my father was traumatized/ I just want to show you, I love you, yeah every single night/ Yeah, I just want to show you, I’ll show you, I’ll show you my life.” Vocalist Hannah Hooper joins him for an added harmony.
Grouplove will be embarking on a World Tour beginning in late September, but before that they’ll be celebrating their newest album with a busy schedule in New York and Los Angeles. The band will play three shows a day in New York the day Big Mess drops on September 9th, and another three shows in Los Angeles on September 14th.
