When I Grow Down
Capturing the attention of any audience with their innovative drum sounds and strong electric guitar and keyboard solos, the Boring Normals are anything but boring. Their eclectic sound of soft rock, folk music and blue grass influences help create their consistent acoustic style, allowing for easy listening. The full album is weaved together with beautiful harmonies, clear lead vocals, catchy hooks and a balanced overall sound. On their new album "When I Grow Down", their poetic lyrics relay a strong message about the journey of life. They thoughtfully portray life's journey with 10 unforgettable tracks. The album's title and first single, "When I Grow Down" describes the passage of a young woman from childhood to adulthood. Unable to understand her or provide her with the correct guidance as she makes her way in the world, a father figure reflects on his past and what he has learned as he has grown-up and come into his own. The band's depiction of the emotional turmoil and triumphs every individual experiences as he or she grows as a person evokes life lessons. Such songs as "Breathing", "When I Grow Down", and "Ballad of a Middle Aged Man", eloquently relay a story to the listener. The Boring Normals are reflective of such bands & artists as: Tom Petty, Bob Dylan and The Wallflowers. I encourage people to take note of this band's meaningful life message and enjoy what they have created. There is something here for everyone. D. Cortese.
