A brutally raw, unapologetic release, Sleep Talk's EP Growing Pains spits relatable stories of heartbreak, the bearing weight of loneliness and depression, and the death-defying roller coaster that is growing up.
Recorded, mixed and mastered by Jarred Nettle (responsible for the amazing release Night Life by Raccoon City Police Department), the group toys with the conventional boundaries of their genre, opting for the use of a trumpet solo in Teeth, multiple vocalists and unusual song structures. An emotional explosion, the young band speaks hard truths about life, love and the transition to adulthood. Mother is a desperate ode to holding onto lost dreams as a child, "I was so starry eyed, I had my hopes up high, they always said "you'll shine", I guess one day I'll try", while Yellow Cars speaks of the struggles of growing up with the hard parental figures. Watch You Leave describes the aftermath of a relationship. "This watch it ticks but still time hasn't healed a thing"
Upon release, the boys stated that the EP was a release for those who: "If you've ever been in a room surrounded by all your friends and never felt more alone, this is for you. Sometimes growing up isn't easy but what choice do we have."
