Earlier this year, California-via-Baltimore artist Quantum Keys released two incandescently sunny tracks — “Grow” and “Keep Good Habits” — that were in constant rotation on my summer playlist. Now that warmer days have given way to the cold (and snow) here on the East Coast, the video for “Grow” serves as a reminder of better times. It was shot on friends’ cellphones over a few weeks in John Gudenzi’s home state. Here’s what he had to say about it in an email: “It chronicles life in the Maryland suburbs, featuring family, friends, and the nature that is essential to keep in contact with. I got a haircut in the middle of shooting.” It also features some singalong-style lyrics overlaid on the footage. Watch below.
