Growing are set to release PUMPS in April on Vice. Here’s a track to tide you over, bumpkins.
Growing’s latest offering is another top-shelf freakout of glitch, fuzz and drone. Drum machines create dense tribal rhythms and form the bedrock for the loneliest dance floor in the universe. Vocal samples swoop in and out like starlings over effects laden synths and guitar. Growinghas given birth to a magical creation with PUMPS - it’s the audio equivalent of coming out of an anesthetic haze with a squirming pile of joy wrapped safely in your eardrums.
