Tuff Love to release “Groucho” split 7” single with Lazy Day for RSD [Premiere]

30 March 2015, 11:45 | Written by Laura Rancani

Glaswegian lo-fi popsters Tuff Love burst forth with sunny, scuzzy new single “Groucho”, premiering today on Best Fit. The duo were featured earlier this year in Backstage with Best Fit.

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"

“Groucho” is released as a limited edition split 7” single (backed with Lazy Day’s “Portrait” - listen below) via Lost Map on 18 April for Record Store Day.
