"Lovely Cup" by Grouplove
Recognize these folks from Glee? Sure, their chart-topping hit "Tongue Tied" was featured on the primetime TV show, but that's not all they're known for: The band has also gained serious success with the debut album, Never Trust a Happy Song. This L.A. indie rock band continuously churns out super-infectious tunes like "Lovely Cup," which have smooth bass lines, sweet guitar licks, and the sort of repetitious lyrics that were born for the sole purpose of burrowing deep into your mind.
