LA-based indie band Grouplove have been making fans dance for nearly a decade. They're known for their pop anthems like "Tongue Tied" and "Ways To Go," each song they put out a fiery, vibrant ode to good times. Today, they dropped a brand new single (well, new for official release, but the band has played it live for lucky raging fans) called "Remember That Night" and it's certainly a track to remember.

The opening of "Remember That Night" is a disorienting monologue from lead vocalist Hannah Hooper, quickly and numbly relaying a memory of when she and a past lover were "two young kids feeling under attack / just making out in the street" over a light piano rhythm. From there, an onslaught of layered percussion and guitar kicks in as Hooper's performance becomes more impassioned, singing "Yeah it felt so right / You and I / Like this was something out of a dream." The hook, though, is a desperate inquiry as Hooper begs for answers, "Am I stupid or do I want you back? Let me go." Throughout the song's speedy three minutes, the whole arrangement moves from dull lurking pulses of nostalgia to bursts of catchy, swollen electric instrumentation. A few times during "Remember That Night," the music drops out and turns to a deep percussive line, a sultry anticipation of its slow-going slink. On their latest single, which they've officially added to last year's album Big Mess on Spotify, Grouplove offer a memorable, one-of-a-kind chant anthem for those late nights alone with yourself, drinking cheap alcohol, trying to convince yourself you're better off without the person you made all those memories with -- a tough realization made easier with a killer Grouplove song.
