I have been a huge proponent of Grouplove ever since 2011 when they dropped their debut album Never Trust a Happy Song, and unfortunately I have missed the chance to see these guys in concert on two separate occasions (and one of those was when they were opening for Young the Giant) so hopefully I will be able to see them when they are touring for this album. Anyways, Big Mess sees the group owning in on the sound that they have established over the past few years. They provide signature anthemic choruses and infectious hooks to make catchy music for the contemporary radio listener.
