3.0 goodcjbizzlebizzle | August 2nd 17

Grow Up is a good alt/indie-rock, post-punk album that is held back by a few rather obvious flaws. The groups' overall sound is clean, synergistic and really, really good with bright energetic vocals paired with well-produced post-punk instrumentation. The main problem is the band sticking to a set songwriting formula without much room for imagination from track to track. Each song sounds very familiar after the first few have passed by. Vocals and instruments included, the band seems a bit desperate for more ideas despite most of the songs being rather high quality. Another minor gripe is some of the lyrics most notably the hooks coming off as being written to be obvious hooks and catchy, a bit too blunt at times. The rhyme scheme in Radiating is also just, bad and the song feels unnecessary. Enough complaints though. This is a solid 45-minute record with some truly great tracks in Resolution, Be Kind, Why Are You so Boring? and Oh Nina and worth visiting to any post-punk/indie rock fan. A great overall sound gets a bit subdued by lack of variation.
