Group Sounds - Business Before Pleasure

I'd heard a couple things from NYC's Group Sounds before, and thought they sounded promising, so when I found another MP3 from them in my inbox the other day I was eager to give it a listen. It's hard to put a finger on their sound, but there's an 80's new-wave influence in there with the vocal harmonies, keyboards and danceable rhythms; "Business Before Pleasure" definitely captures this. Talking Heads and Devo comparisons wouldn't be out of the question (and as it turns out, they also did a Devo cover on their debut album). They've released one full-length album and an EP so far, with more new material currently in the works. Give these songs a listen and see what you think.

best part about going to a group sounds show is they mysteriously have more hot women at their shows than any other band i've ever seen
