London five-piece Groves originally formed in Manchester but now call the south London home. Based out of Peckham / New Cross, Groves played their first live shows at a series of warehouse parties they threw called ‘Late Night Grooves’, where they’d begin by playing atmospheric live-sets followed by a night of house and techno. All these elements have come together to influence their sound and, after a year spent playing live before committing anything to tape, Groves have signed to Different with a slew of richly textured tracks that draw inspiration from all the above influences.
‘Do You Feel’ is the first glimpse of recordings the band have made in a quest to capture the feel of their Manchester live-sound. It’s a release made up of many layers; some of which can be accredited to rich variety of analogue equipment utilised during the recordings.
