Grouplove Unveils Theme Song for Netflix Original Series "BoJack Horseman"

"Back In The 90's (BoJack Theme Song)" Closes Each Episode of the Network's First Adult Animated Series, Starring Will Arnett, Aaron Paul, and Amy Sedaris; LA-Based Band Set to Perform on NBC's "Late Night with Seth Meyers" on September 17; Co-Headlining

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 08/25/14 -- Canvasback Music/Atlantic recording artists Grouplove have unveiled the theme song to the irreverent and darkly hilarious Netflix Original Series "BoJack Horseman," starring Will Arnett, Aaron Paul, and Amy Sedaris. Written and recorded by Grouplove frontman Christian Zucconi specifically for the series, the song, "Back In The 90's (BoJack Theme Song)," plays at the conclusion of each episode of the network's first adult animated series, which recently premiered on August 22, and is currently streaming here: http://bit.ly/XG5y69. The trailer for "BoJack Horseman" can be viewed at Netflix's official YouTube channel (http://youtu.be/i1eJMig5Ik4).

"I am honored to be part of such an incredible project that involves so many talented people," says Zucconi. "The creators of the show brought me to the animation studios where I watched a teaser that began to unveil the complex character of BoJack. Pretty sure he is every artist's worst nightmare, but regardless I find myself rooting for him. It was fun to write a song for BoJack because it needed to combine the highs and lows that come with life but still be catchy as hell."

"As huge fans of Grouplove, we were thrilled when Christian and the band agreed to create an original song for BoJack Horseman," said the show's executive producer Noel Bright. "As soon as we heard the song, we knew it would be a perfect end credit theme that would add an extra layer to the show -- it's catchy, fun and memorable, which are hallmarks of a Grouplove song."

In other news, Grouplove is set to on NBC's "Late Night with Seth Meyers" on September 17. The performance follows the band's Honda Civic Tour finale on the Central Park Summerstage in New York City on September 16. The band is currently co-headlining the cross-country trek with Atlantic labelmates Portugal. The Man. For more information, please visit www.grouplovemusic.com/tour.

LA-based band Grouplove has quickly become one of music's most exhilarating young acts. The quintet's second full length album "SPREADING RUMOURS" arrived last September and was met with a raft of acclaim from the likes of Rolling Stone, USA Today, Entertainment Weekly, Los Angeles Times, NYLON, and National Public Radio who called it "ludicrously easy to love." As with all of Grouplove's recorded material, the collection was produced by the band's own Ryan Rabin and features singles "Ways To Go" and "Shark Attack." The band heralded the album's release with an electrifying performance on the outdoor stage of ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live and the sold out "SeeSaw Tour," which featured two-night stands in eleven cities across the country, treating fans to an electric show the first night and a stripped down/acoustic set the second with all performances taking place in intimate settings, including legendary clubs, historic sites, and obscure or rarely used venues. Earlier this year, Grouplove contributed the original song "Let Me In" to Atlantic's "THE FAULT IN OUR STARS - MUSIC FROM THE MOTION PICTURE," the musical companion to the blockbuster film based on The New York Times bestseller.

Grouplove first came together in 2009 and soon were hailed as a great live act, both as headliners and at such international festivals as Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, Reading + Leeds Festivals, and Glastonbury. "NEVER TRUST A HAPPY SONG" arrived in 2011, making a stellar chart debut among the top 5 on Billboard's "Heatseekers" album chart for new and developing acts. The acclaimed album was highlighted by the debut single, "Colours," which received critical acclaim and climbed to the top reaches at Alternative radio outlets nationwide. "Tongue Tied," the second single from "NEVER TRUST A HAPPY SONG," proved an even greater success, earning RIAA platinum certification for sales in excess of 1 million while spending 3 consecutive weeks at #1 on the Alternative airplay chart. By year's end, the track became Alternative radio's second most-played song of 2012, following only Gotye's "Somebody That I Used To Know." The third single, "Itchin' On A Photograph" also reached the Top 10 at Alternative radio.

Grouplove's dynamic live sets continued to win over fans on a pair of headline tours, both of which saw sold out crowds at every stop. That same undeniable energy was seen in an array of high profile television appearances, including CBS' Late Show with David Letterman, NBC's TODAY and Tonight Show with Jay Leno, TBS' Conan, and ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Grouplove is: Christian Zucconi (vocals, guitar), Hannah Hooper (vocals, keys), Andrew Wessen (guitar, vocals), Ryan Rabin (drums).

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered.
