"They've developed a rare power, an ability to knock people flat, unsetting equilibriums while melding nature sounds and pummeling low-end with sweetly melodic guitar drones that form an expansive cocoon..." - Dusted

"Growing is like driving through early evening fog only to be overtaken by a downpour, pelted by sudden hail then shown a pretty rainbow when the sun breaks through." Exclaim!

“Growing’s layered and cyclical pieces all have an inexorable forward movement that gives this record a rock-like momentum...” - The Wire

“A kaleidosope of prismatic tones and juddering electronics forming a series of mesmeric constellations.” - Mojo

“More power to this droning Brooklyn duo for devising a moving, often subtly gorgeous sound at a time when every hipster and his NA sponsor has a “killer ambient-noise side project.” - Spin

“One band that’s all about progression is Growing, who over the the past few years have released a series of albums each more exceptional than the last.” - Plan B

In 1999 Joe DeNardo moved into a house in Olympia where Kevin Doria lived. A few months later they began playing guitars in the basement under the name 1000 AD. Their early two guitar sound stressed repetition, physical volume, sustain, and harmonic density. After a self-released tape during a short time with Wynne Greenwood playing keyboards, they changed their name to GROWING in 2001 and began playing with Eryn Ross on drums.

That incarnation recorded "THE SKY'S RUN INTO THE SEA" in 2002 on a non-existent budget with Stefan Simikich (HAMBURGER EYES) engineering. Spacial elements began to find their way into the song structures, as the process of recording started to help transform GROWINGs lack of boundaries. They sent a copy to Kranky Records who decided to release the record, as well as the bands follow-up (now minus Eryn Ross), THE SOUL OF THE RAINBOW AND THE HARMONY OF LIGHT, recorded in Portland with Rex Ritter in 2003.

At this point the band had begun to develop their use of layering and recorded much of the raw materials at home, relying on Ritter's studio to help reorganize, reamp, and embelish the depth of their sound. Early in 2003 Mogwai invited GROWING to play at Camber Sands as part of ALL TOMORROW'S PARTIES. Following the SRHL sessions Joe moved to New York. Late in 2003 Growing played ATP again by invitation of Jake and Dinos Chapman.

By 2004 Kevin was on his way to New York and GROWING was getting ready to record HIS RETURN at Junkyard Studios in Greenpoint for Troubleman Unlimited's underlabel MEGABLADE. HIS RETURN tries to articulate both incredibly minimal structural progressions and a sort of "folk music"-inspired traditionalism, while remaining very thick.

In 2005 they recorded COLOR WHEEL in Montreal in THE PINES recording studio, run by Dave Bryant (Godspeed! You Black Emperor) and Craig Bowen. THE PINES granted GROWING the first opportunity to truly utilize the studio as an instrument in their creative process. In the spring GROWING played with friends SUNN 0))), BLACK DICE, GANG GANG DANCE, and OOIOO on the "WHAT IS MUSIC?" tour of Australia. They returned to the PINES in 2006 to record VISION SWIM, their final record for TMU. These two records widened the spectrum of what listeners could expect from GROWING, as they explored electronics in new and less categorical ways.

As a testament to the quality found in THE PINES, GROWING returned there in the summer of 2007 to record for their new record label THE SOCIAL REGISTRY. They released a 7" in December and an EP in february of 2008 called LATERAL. Both releases balance abstraction, pure sound, and melody without the crutch of unnecessary premeditation.

Also in the winter of 2007/8, GROWING recorded a full length at OCROPLIS STUDIO in Brooklyn, NY, with their friend and studio engineer Barry London. They toured in Europe for 6 weeks in April with BORIS, and played ATPNY in September. After the OCROPOLIS sessions were released as the full length ALL THE WAY in September, they toured the east coast with HOT CHIP. GROWING wrapped up 2008 by adding new member Sadie Laska (IUD, EXTREME VIOLENCE), who's increased the depth of their sound with varied electronics, samples, and vocal parts. The band hopes to get back in the studio in March before playing in Tokyo in April at DAYMARE'S Leave Them All Behind festival.
