Indie rock band Grouplove performed their song “Gold Coast” from their 2010 self-titled debut album live at Chicago’s JBTV Studios. Grouplove formed in 2009 among friends who met at an artist commune in Crete. The group features a harmonic combination of vocals from Christian Zucconi and Hannah Hooper, guitarist Andrew Wessen, bassist Sean Gadd, and drummer Ryan Rabin. While the formation of their band may have been an unlikely coincidence, they proved to have a true talent making music together. Their song “Tongue Tied” reached the 42nd spot on the Billboard Hot 100 and they have toured globally in support of their 2 studio albums, Never Trust a Happy Song (2011) and Spreading Rumours (2013).

Check out the lyrics:

So you travel ’round this country
You’re looking for your holy ghost.
And what you gonna find
Is it’s somewhere, where you like to hide.
So you run around your ego, you run around your gold coast.
You know you got the time
Because this prison is our own design.
So you thinkin’ of your future,
You’re thinkin’ of some old past.
And it’s your time to shine,
So what you’re gonna go and leave behind?
And there’s no one left to be in with and there’s nothing left downstairs.
When you feel despair, what’s your method to get outta there?
So where you from, son?
And are you a troubled one?
And if so, come under my wings.
Now what’s your story?
And is there glory today
Cause that’s the only way out there.
So you run around this earth-top, you run around your head miles (?),
And what you wanna find is peace of mind,
Or what you can’t describe.
And it’s definitely somethin’, it’s definitely somewhere,
You know the signs are there.
Calling it a fable would just be unfair.
So where you from, girl?
And will you paint my world?
And if so, come under my wings.
So what’s your story?
And is there glory today?
‘Cause that’s the only way out there.
Whoa-ooh-ohh, yeah. [2x]
