““Boston’s The Grownup Noise is easy like Sunday morning—lazy, warm, and full of the best intentions. The quartet blends sleepy melodies with guitarist-vocalist Paul Hansen’s intelligent croon... The Grownup Noise’s best asset, however is the songwriting, with lines of love and the changing seasons coming out as gently and colorful as the music itself."
The Onion, AV Club
““Music Pick: Straight out of Boston in their veggie oil -powered band van, The Grownup Noise is a playfully poppy indie rock quartet with armfuls of groove. Their basic rock instrumentation—drums, guitar and bass—is laced with melodic vocals and stirring cello."
The Valley Advocate Northampton, MA
"One listen will very likely win you over. They make arresting music."
Ryan's Smashing Life
"Loaded with hooks upon hooks upon still more hook, this Beantown quartet delivers eclectic but impossibly catchy pop nuggets laced with poetic, thought-pro-voking lyricism."
Seven Days Paper, Burlington, VT
"Just really good material and a band capable of delivering it. Outstanding!"
Metronome Magazine Boston, MA
"The Grownup Noise combines smart lyrics with keen vocals, and its songs are doses of melodic sunshine."
Portland Press Herald
"This was The Grownup Noise tour-send off show, and the room swelled right as they were hitting the stage. These kids were on fire, delivering the best set I've yet seen from them. They also play kind-of-quiet indie-pop, but they know how to rock out."
Boston Band Crush
““At a time when pop has become most people’s guilty pleasure, it is as refreshing as it is rare to find a band that is not afraid to explore the genre as innovators.”
Good Times Paper Santa Cruz, CA
"Live Review: Unique is the word to describe this band... A pretty versatile group all around, and one the audience doesn't want to leave, as they use cell phones in place of lighters to elicit one more song... no argument here."
"At home in both the rock club and the coffeehouse, the band also has this indie rock vibe that is, nonetheless, friendly, accessible, even earnest."
