“Growing Pains” is the soundtrack to a dream you never want to wake up from. Chicago bedroom producer American Wolf mixes chill synths and a drum machine beat to make this modern lullaby. Everything about it is soft and gentle, relaxing and simple. You can feel the stress drip off your body as the music massages your eardrums.
American Wolf’s voice reminds me of Youth Lagoon, but soothing and nonabrasive. “Growing Pains” is artsy, as if it was written for a black and white montage. It makes me want to sink into my mattress and smile.
