Growing Pains – September 2020

Dotted across the days of September, it has often felt like time is rushing through us. It keeps pouring in, the minutes finding themselves disintegrating into each other, and pours out with a swishing blur. These long drawled out visceral moments of knowing nothing really visceral is happening – all during a period when many of us feel like we should be emerging into a new state of life.

Growing older this year has felt like a diminished, constricted possibility of what could have been once experienced. The fear of not knowing the tangibility of growing older, the act of bracing yourself for a striking movement of growth when the world decides to show itself to you – turns out, growing pains ripple through you even when everything around you comes to a halt.

We hope you hear the echoes of our fused fear and exhilaration for change and growth in these songs.
