Best New Band of 2011 - Grouplove

I have to be honest. We were so busy running the site that we totally forgot about naming "The Best New Band of 2011" until, literally, yesterday. The good news is that it doesn't matter. Even if we had polled the universe, we would have reached the same conclusion. I can't recall a band with better songs, better chops and better presence than Grouplove.

Check out this video of the band's appearance on Letterman. It's an amazing look at a band that's at the top of their game, delivering the breakthrough performance of their career and having a hell of a good time doing it. It doesn't get any better than this. Competion closed. Happy New Year.
