Olivia: My dad was in Iowa for work when we did this interview. He was really mad that he couldn’t be here for it. I didn’t want to make him feel bad, but Connie and I had a really good time interviewing Matt and Kim.
Connie: They were so much fun and so nice!
Olivia: They gave us t-shirts and balloons. My favorite part was playing around after we finished the interview.
Connie: I surprised them. You’ll see how surprised they were when you watch the interview.
Connie: We got to see Grouplove in concert at Bunbury in July. Olivia and I really wanted to interview them there but we didn’t see them before or after their concert.
Olivia: My mom and I both have Grouplove on our iPods and we always listen to them when we are driving around. My favorite song is “Colours”. My mom’s favorite song is “Chloe”. Grouplove’s manager called my dad when we were driving to the interview and he said that Christian (the singer) wasn’t going to be at the interview. I was sad, that’s who I really wanted to interview.
Connie: The guys wanted to do the interview at a table with chairs. Hannah wanted to do the interview where they were selling t-shirts and she said that if we did the interview there, she’d give us free t-shirts!
Olivia: I was singing “And I see black, black, green,and brown, brown, brown and blue, yellow, violets, red” (dad note: lyrics from the song “Colours”) in the car on the way to the interview and then Hannah gave me a shirt that said “black, black, green,and brown, brown, brown and blue, yellow, violets, red” on it!
Connie: We wish Christian was there but the rest of the band was really nice and funny so it was okay that he didn’t do the interview with us.
