That's My Jam #64 - Tuff Love - Groucho
Released for Record Store Day on 18th April, Groucho is the latest single from the ever veritable Glasgow duo Tuff Love. It's hot on the heals of their last EP Dross which came out via Lost Map back in February, proving the bank don't wait around to make the next impact.
Groucho bursts out with intent. An short intro that wouldn't be out of place in a Cure track, warps into a sun-baked, forceful track, which retains a 'laid back' vibe throughout partially thanks to those lazy vocal harmonies. Suse and Julie recorded this track at the same time as the Dross EP but left it off. Listening to the tracks together you can tell why, and as a stand alone single Groucho really hits home.
The track is available on a split 7" backed by Portrait from London's Lazy Day. Go grab a copy from your local record shop or direct from Lost Map.
