Anxious – “Growing Up Song”

Anxious – “Growing Up Song”

Anxious come from the hardcore scene, but their fired-up melodicism sounds more like emo or pop-punk. The young Connecticut band signed to Run For Cover and announced their debut full-length Little Green House, produced by Chris Teti of This World Is A Beautiful Place And I Am No Longer Afraid To Die, a little over a month ago. And today, they’re following up lead single “In April” with a new one called “Growing Up Song.”

“‘Growing Up Song’ is about how I cope with people close to me changing as we’ve become young adults,” explains guitarist Dante Melucci. “It’s scary to me when I start to feel like I don’t understand someone I care about anymore, and as easy it is for me to blame them for not being who I thought they were, I’m changing all the time too, and that’s okay.”

The song’s video is a goofy take on the kind of rapid aging that Old‘s beach will do to you, and you can watch and listen below.

Little Green House is out 1/21 via Run For Cover. Pre-order it here.
