Grouplove, “Ways to Go”
I just got back from a whirlwind ten day business trip to LA, and I’m so exhausted that the only meaningful conclusion I’ve made about the city is this: LA radio blows. First off, what self-respecting “alternative rock” station plays Coldplay?
Anyway, after spending two or three hours in a car every day, I heard about five different songs, approximately 1000 different times: Avicii, Bastille’s “Pompeii,” Capital Cities’ “Safe and Sound,” The Neighbourhood’s “Sweater Weather” and several indistinguishable things by Imagine Dragons.
…Thankfully, Grouplove’s “Ways to Go” was in there, too. Maybe it’s just because it provided sickly brief shelter from having to hear those other songs, maybe because it’s genuinely catchy—whatever the reason, I was glad to hear it. When I got home to Brooklyn, I decided to seek out the video and… it’s delightful, refuge or no.
