Highlight Lyric: “I used to close my eyes/ To what stirred under my bed/ Now they’re open wide/ To the monsters in my bed/ Instead of claws, they whisper lies/ Sinking fear in quiet steps/ So I will fight in the light/ ‘Til I give my final breath.” from Growing Up

Highlight Review: “an aggressive brand of indie pop, indebted to the folk tradition that their debut EP rung of, but bursting with far more energy.” – read more at Philthy Mag
