In a four star review of ‘Growing Up’, NME said: “Tracks on here like ‘Fine’ and the aforementioned ‘Racist, Sexist Boy’ are vital, powerful bursts of punk fury. Yet when they let their pop music imaginations run free it’s equally impressive, with tracks like ‘Growing Up’, ‘Talking To Myself’ and ‘Magic’ showcasing a gift for catchy, singalong choruses.”
Speaking to NME last month about the making of the album, 15-year-old drummer Lucia de la Garza said: “We’ve learned that music can do anything, and it can get you through anything. It’s really fun to see how we’re growing as musicians.
“Even from the [self-titled] EP which we wrote only about a year before, you can see how we’ve grown as songwriters, and see how we were trying to figure out what our sound is. We hope there are many more to come and that they keep showing how we’re progressing.”
