Grouplove have unveiled the official music video for “Oxygen Swimming,” featured on their new album, This Is This, and streaming now via YouTube.
“Here’s for another magical Grouplove collaboration with our dear friend and director Issac Deitz,” front woman Hannah Hooper says. “’Oxygen Swimming’ was the first song Christian and I wrote after Willa was born. It reflects the feeling of being able to do something so big but still being so small in the universe.”
Surprise released earlier this year, Grouplove’s fifth studio album, This Is This is available now HERE. The album – which follows last year’s Healer – is highlighted by such stellar new tracks as “Deadline“ and “This Is The End,” both joined by creative music videos directed by ATL-based filmmaker Isaac Deitz and streaming now HERE.
Grouplove celebrated This Is This by launching their unprecedented livestream concert series, This is This Moment. Launched in partnership with premium digital live platform Moment House, This is This Moment allows fans to purchase a subscription to an exclusive monthly live performance set for every second Thursday of the month with each show featuring a completely unique set list, including complete album performances, unreleased music, rarely played fan favourites, Q&As, and more. The first two shows showed incredible performances of their album This is This as well as other fan-favourite tracks. The next show, which will see the band playing their sophomore album Spreading Rumors, is set for this Thursday, May 13th – for tickets and additional details, please visit www.momenthouse.com/grouplove.
Grouplove – who commemorated the unexpected announcement of This Is This with a live performance of “Deadline” on CBS’ The Late Late Show with James Corden – recently marked the new album with the launch of a special action centre on Propeller in partnership with The Ally Coalition supporting Black LGBTQ Youth and the centres that serve them. Fans who take action will be entered to win exclusive prizes from Grouplove, including virtual meet and greets, merch, and tickets to an upcoming show.

They are continuing their partnership with The Ally Coalition to help fans take action for LGBTQ youth, who disproportionately experience homelessness, depression, bullying and suicidal ideation. TAC provides critical support for undeserved organizations dedicated to bettering the lives of LGBTQ youth and raises awareness about the systemic inequalities facing the LGBTQ community.”
