The Grownup Noise :: Music :: Boston
Since releasing their self-titled debut in 2007, Boston’s The Grownup Noise have evolved into a rousing and innovative pop-music outfit, bridging the gap between americana and indie music. With a genuine respect for every style of music, this band and its songwriter Paul Hansen, are song obsessed. And more than happy to garner quotes like this from The Onion A.V. Club: “The Grownup Noise’s best asset, however is the songwritng, with lines of love and the changing seasons coming out as gently and colorful as the music itself”. Or this from The Boston Globe: “one of Boston’s most promising outfits…a sense of sincerity, wonder, and poetry beats at the heart of skewed folk-pop songs”.
“What drives me to create is the beautiful and absurd nature of the human mind. That ideas and the paring of music and words can never be exhausted. And that these emotions, memories, and feelings can be transmitted through art to ease suffering or open hearts and minds.”
“My favorite thing about the Boston music scene is that it can be quite intense and judgmental, but then when artists, from varying scenes and genres, spend 5 minutes together it becomes an absolute love-fest. And usually that love and connection continues on. I’m hoping we can complete the circle someday.”
-Paul Hansen from The Grownup Noise
