"Growing Pains" is an indie pearler from Manchester based artist Abbie Ozard. Taking influence from the late '80s/early '90s Manchester scene, this is a catchy tune with the pop sensibility of The Cure and the modern charm of Snail Mail.
This lo-fi coming of age track utilizing Ozard's cooing vocals and catchy songwriting is the ideal introduction to her sound, with the relative newcomer having this to say about "Growing Pains":
The song talks about a young persons perception of love and the confusion that comes with it. I wanted to write a song that makes teenagers feel less isolated when falling in and out of love and struggling with identity and acceptance. A challenge that i’ve had to go through myself and one which i’m sure many others have to or are yet to go through.
This is a a feel good single and hints at the potential to come from Ozard. Here's hoping there's a followup track on the radar soon.
