“Unquestionably one of the best indie rock albums of 2012.”
– PERFORMER MAGAZINE
“Two Steppin’, head bobbin’ garage pop that’s as snappy as it is heartbreaking.”
– OF SHOWS AND BURRITOS
“As deeply indebted to the postpunk ’70s and ’80s scene as it is to
Pixies, Sonic Youth, and classic surf rock.”
– SF WEEKLY
“Without sounding at all retro, without sounding at all dated, and without sounding at all like they are trying to be someone else – every song could be on a John Hughes film soundtrack.”
– BAGeL Ted / BAGeL Radio / Soma FM
Grow Up was engineered and produced by long time friend Duane M. Ramos in a garage in Loveless’ hometown – a sleepy suburb of San Francisco called Walnut Creek. The album has been expertly described by a fan as “a concept album about the hopes and disappointments of a generation who came of age just past the turn of the millennium. It’s nostalgic but not overly sentimental in its reconstruction of a search for identity, adventure, and authenticity inside mysterious suburban nights and striking foggy mornings.” Others describe the band as “Smiths-indebted post-grunge” (SF Weekly), for fans of Pixies, Sonic Youth, and classic surf rock.
“Wild Summer,” the latest single from Grow Up, is currently available for free download on the band’s website with the purchase of a “tweet.” It’s accompanying brilliant video has been featured on YouTube, Owl Magazine, and as AOL’s Video of the Day.
