In under three minutes, Julie Eisenstein (guitar, vocals) and Suse Bear (bass, vocals) unleash a windstorm of fuzzed-out, sun-bleached exuberance. The hook-laden track conveys a sense of urgency and laid-back cool at the same time, highlighting the duo’s flair for multi-faceted guitar pop that is melodic, spacious, and charmingly scruffy.
Speaking about the track, the band said: "We're so pumped to be releasing 'Groucho' as a split with Lazy Day. We recorded 'Groucho' in January and didn't feel it went with the other batch of songs we were recording for our next release, so thought it would be cool to do a single asap. 7" singles are exciting. Also can't wait to get on tour again in April & May and do some summer festivals, SEE YOU THERE! Julie and Suse x"
