Grouplove premiered new track 'Lovely Cup', with its toe-tapping grace and single potential, at The Great Escape 2011.

Opener ‘Don’t Say Oh Well’ was a fast firing hit and the band went on to play the majority of their 2011 debut self-titled EP.

Bassist Sean Gadd from London said: “I live Brighton but it’s these guys first time visiting so I’ve been showing them the sights.

He added: “We’ve been touring the UK and you’re the best crowd we’ve had.”

The band, who played their one year anniversary show yesterday, powered through technical issues to deliver the feel-good defining set of the day.
