The latest full-length from GROUPLOVE, I Want It All Right Now begins by shining a bright and cathartic light on one of the deepest tensions of the human psyche. In a moment of unbridled expression emblematic of the Atlanta-based band, the album-opening “All” finds vocalist/guitarist Christian Zucconi listing off a litany of unmet desires, then explodes into a glorious outburst of longing and frustration. “That song is our way of asking, ‘Why do we always want something more than what we have?'” says Zucconi. “So many of us are stuck in this perpetual cycle of seeking some type of validation or fulfillment from the outside world, when it’s very possible that everything we need already exists within us.” Built on a raw but incandescent sound vocalist/keyboardist Hannah Hooper refers to as “resistance pop,” I Want It All Right Now explores that paradox with equal parts tenderness, curiosity, and exacting self-revelation-ultimately arriving at a body of work that leaves the listener newly awakened to the wisdom of their own intuition.

GROUPLOVE’s sixth LP and first release since signing to Glassnote Records, I Want It All Right Now emerged from a period of intense transformation for Hooper and Zucconi, a married couple who are principal songwriters and lead vocalists for the band. “For me this whole journey started with wanting or asking for certain things from the world around me, then slowly turning inward and realizing I needed to pay more attention to what was going on internally,” says Hooper. Largely informed by their experience in raising a daughter with sensory needs, the album’s 11 wildly kaleidoscopic songs document that shift from external searching to radical self-discovery, embedding each track with so much warmly articulated insight. “Our daughter has been our teacher and completely reframed the way we see the world,” says Hooper. “From the get-go our band has been about bringing joy and a sense of safety and inclusion to people’s lives, and now we feel even more of a need to help everyone feel this very powerful love that we believe exists, and that links all of us together.”

Lucky For You is Bully’s most close-to-the-bone album yet. It’s an album that’s searing and unmistakably marked by its creator’s experiences, while still retaining the massive sound that Alicia Bognanno has become known for over the last decade. Her fourth album draws from personal pain and the universal struggle that is existing, learning, and moving on — and it’s all soundtracked by Bognanno’s rock-solid melodic sensibilities and a widescreen sound that’s impossible to pin down when it comes to the textures explored. These ten songs are simply the most irresistible Bognanno’s put to tape yet, making Lucky For You her greatest triumph to date in a career already packed with them.

Work on Lucky For You began last year, when Bognanno brought some in-progress demos to producer J.T. Daly in his Nashville studio to see if they could strike creative kismet. “Authenticity is always on my mind, without even knowing it,” she explains while discussing their recording process together. “If I’m doing something that doesn’t feel natural or right, I’m quick to shut it down. So it was great with J.T., because I could tell he was a genuine fan who wanted to emphasize what’s actually good about my writing instead of changing it. I could tell how much he cared about the project and it meant alot to me.”

    Grouplove is an amazing live band, that my wife and I would feel awful sad about missing. What’s more, the opening band Bully, released one of the better albums of the year last year, and we also sadly missed them at the Aladdin a few months ago. It would be an awesome surprise to get these tickets and see two incredible bands for one! Thank you for the opportunity to enter this contest!

  8. Kayla on February 8, 2024 at 2:36 pm

    Would love to be able to surprise my man with these. 🥰🎉

  13. Tracy on February 13, 2024 at 1:36 pm

    It would be awesome to see Grouplove to celebrate that my boyfriend and I met 6 months before the show date!

  16. danielle on February 20, 2024 at 2:30 pm

    Don’t leave me tongue tied
    Let’s stay up all night
    I’ll get real high
    Slumber party, pillow fight
    My eyes on your eyes
    Like Peter Pan up in the sky
    My best friend’s house tonight
    Let’s bump the beats ’til beddy-bye

  17. Kara Bhullar on February 20, 2024 at 3:12 pm

    Would love to go!

  18. Dee on February 20, 2024 at 3:20 pm

    I would be so happy to go to this! Love this band!

  19. Drew on February 20, 2024 at 3:23 pm

    One of my favorite ’00s bands!

  20. Zach on February 20, 2024 at 4:03 pm

    I’ve had a soft spot for Grouplove ever since I discovered them through the BoJack Horseman end theme.

  21. Jean on February 20, 2024 at 5:39 pm

    I didn’t even realize they were coming to Portland!!

  22. Jesse on February 21, 2024 at 8:26 am

    Anticipation for this show makes my tied tongue.

  23. Maddie Skelton on February 22, 2024 at 8:56 am

    Grouplove!?!? Coming to Portland! I can imagine myself shouting the lyrics to Tongue Tied with a drink in my hand and the music thumping under and around me. I freaking love this song and this band so much! Just imagine that same scenario above except in a friends house yelling with all your friends “take me to your best friend’s house…” Nostalgia. For this reason I would love to get a sip of good vibes and being able to see one of the best bands ever! Cheers and thanks for doing these giveaways:)

  24. Heidi on February 22, 2024 at 2:08 pm

    I would love to go to this show!

  25. Margaret H on February 24, 2024 at 10:05 pm

    Would LOVE to see Grouplove, please!

  26. Jerry Reece on February 25, 2024 at 7:55 pm

    I would like to see grouplove because of their live energy, it brings me happiness. Every time I’ve seen them it has created an awesome memory… the first time me and my girlfriend snuck into the power and light district in Kansas City, they came out in morph suits all lit up and jumping and just maintained this high energy positivity all night… the next time was grouplove and Portugal the man and I had the privilege of seeing some art of Hannah Hooper and John Gourley and even still got a shirt with some of their collaboration art on it! Plus the 29th will be my 5 months clean and sober and what better way to celebrate than Grouplove

  27. Tessy on February 25, 2024 at 10:19 pm

    What a treat it would be to see GroupLove and Bully!
