Pick: Grouplove

May 17
Grouplove w/ Reptar
Waiting Room Lounge, 6212 Maple St.
8 p.m., $15, onepercentproductions.com

Chances are "Tongue Tied" has found its way into your ears by now. Grouplove's signature song has traveled across the country in commercials and television shows. But that song's ubiquity shouldn't overshadow the strength of their debut album, Never Trust a Happy Song. The album jumps with energy, though they know how to pull back in the middle of a song like "Colours" in order to built back up to a big moment. The indie-pop gems are powerful, while never stepping too far into power-pop territory. It's a danceable mix of current indie rock touchstones that never strays too close to a contemporary to suggest that they haven't tapped into their own hook-filled originality.
