Bio

The inability to think of a band name for a high school battle of the bands competition lead to the creation of the imaginative and witty name that is ‘Ashgroove’ in 2016. With five members who all have differing music tastes, Ashgroove’s music takes inspiration from a wide variety of genres and draws on these differences to create a unique sound that they can call their own. Their music can best be described as indie pop with rock and folk elements thrown in for good measure. The band consists of Buddy Tait (lead guitar/vocals), Connor Mclauchlan (keys/synth), hum muss (dip), Jack Purtill (rhythm guitar/vocals), Rory Scott (drums) and Varun Karnik (bass).

whatta joy to stumble across! 'Humour Me' is a song that has stuck with me since 2018 and I've been looking forward to hearing the direction of your next release. an upbeat love song with charming lyrics, Boy & Bear-like vocals and a peppering of brass? you've spoilt us, Ashgroove!

100K plays on spotify for this song got me interested, but the second verse around 0:55 sold me. Think there's more good stuff to come from this band.
