Every Friday on Take Two, we profile a different musical act that's doing something notable.

This week it's all about the love with the L.A.-based indie band Grouplove, and their new album "Spreading Rumors."

Alex Cohen talks to Hannah Hooper and Christian Zucconi — two of the vocalists in the band — who also happen to be a couple. 

And they have an origin story that sounds like it's straight form a romantic comedy.

A musician meets a painter; it's love at first sight; they go to Greece; they meet their bandmates; they create a band; and they called it Grouplove.

Take a listen to the group's new album: 

Are you a fan of Grouplove? What do you think of the new album?
