about

The debut effort of Grows remains buoyant and collected as it floats calmly upon an ocean of noise, exercising enough restraint to resist the urge to drown itself in turbulent waters. In “Go, Glow, Grows”, there is nothing extreme, aggressive, or even mildly gross — nothing that is an overt affront to one’s senses or sensibilities, for it is a collection of carefully crafted songs driven by wild romanticism under the cover of the apparent nihilism of fuzz and distortion, a secret glint of hope in an eye obscured by dark sunglasses.

Songs like “Bleak” and “Swoon Salon” are more quixotic than chaotic, and tracks such as “About Face” and “Mind Glue” carry themselves with a slightly uneasy charm that condenses into a substance solid enough not to melt in the face of the heat conjured by the sweltering guitars, driving bass lines, and metronomic drumming. This is contrast achieved by seasoned veterans who have triumphed over form and function; Kaloy Olavides, Bijan Gorospe, and Alvin Zafra have mastered the art of allowing elements to play with and off one another, producing unison from disharmony. Here, we are presented two contrasting realities existing on the same plane; the paradox is not one of vacillation from one state to another but one that embodies two contradictory elements slowly dissolving into each other. The sound and sentiment of Grows grows, both distilled and expansive, both smooth and striated, both heavy and weightless at once.
