Love Can Only Make Us Stronger

A 2 track soul single (9m 3s) — released April 9th 2012 on LOFT RECORDS
"Grupo X deliver soulful intensity and feel-good funky flow...epic, rootsy and, with singer Lisa Millett out front, often spine-tingling." Ben Lovett, Blues and Soul Magazine Championed by Lauren Laverne and Craig Charles, UK groovers, Grupo X return with two powerful, original songs. The brand new track, "Love Can Only Make Us Stronger" is a modern day Curtis Mayfield-style social commentary with a soulful, heavy groove and a nod to the band's Latin roots, as well as powerful horns and yearning vocals from Lisa Millett. "Big Town" is a chunk of contemporary soul/disco, taken from the band's highly-rated, 2011 album, "As Hills Go By". The track also features on Jump Start Music 3 (Ain't All That Records), compiled by Solar FM's Ginger Tony. This release follows up Grupo X's successful 2011 singles, "Waiting All Day" (described as "beautiful" by Lauren Laverne) and the follow-up "Make it Alright" (Jazz FM DJ, Christian Bragg's "Hot One").
