Grooving in Green formed in 2008 when guitarists Pete and Si started writing music together for the first time in over 14 years. As a nod to the bands origins and inspirations they once again took their name from a March Violets song. Later that year Tron joined on vocals completing the lineup. In early 2009 the band set to writing their debut CD, quickly establishing their own sound and feel 'Groove Goth'.
In June the band received critical acclaim for their first EP ‘Ascent’ which was described as "Obvious Quality" (Mick Mercer) and proved to be a hit on compilations and in clubs.
