Groupthink returned to Los Angeles for his second show at the Moroccan Lounge after opening for alt-pop duo DWLLRS earlier in the month. He performed tracks from his debut EP “Guilty Pleasure,” which he released last April. In his first EP, he touches on themes of relationships amidst an Internet-driven culture.
Groupthink opens his set with “Sex is A Sport,” the first track of “Guilty Pleasure,” which was released in June 2022. His songs combine elements from the past few decades of music, ranging from 90s grunge to 2010s pop.
