Growing from the friendship of Gann Matthews and Brad Grear, Honey Blazer chips the shale off rock-and-roll gems that draw from West Coast experimentalism and the best of Golden-Era songwriting. Growing Vine is the first single off their debut full-length, Lookin’ Up.
Bopping along with chimey guitars, catchy Mellotron, and a memorably laid-back vocal, Growing Vine showcases the sounds of Lookin’ Up. Written and recorded during the quarantine in their home-studio, and heavily inspired by Phil Spector’s Wall of Sound, the album explores the difficulties of pandemic life through the lens of growth and self-awareness. Growing Vine is an easy song for troubled times.
