Boston's the Grownup Noise are one of those perfectly named bands whose moniker sums up their aesthetic to a tee, showing a devotion to classic pop composition, simultaneously laden with hooks and rich in texture.

Boston's the Grownup Noise are one of those perfectly named bands whose moniker sums up their aesthetic to a tee. Given that the group came together at Berklee College of Music, it's not surprising that their's is a musicianship of the first order, nor that the five members exhibit a devotion to classic pop composition, simultaneously laden with hooks and rich in texture. Furthermore, each member is a multi-instrumentalist, thus contributing to the expansive sound. Now, that's very grownup, indeed. The Grownup Noise released their debut back in 2007 and have toured with Rock Plaza Central, Thao with the Get Down Stay Down, and Amanda Palmer in the intervening years while honing a set of all-new material. That has culminated in their latest release, This Time With Feeling, which released this June. Today we proudly present the premiere of the band's latest video directed by John Tomma of Extraneous Noise and filmed at Middle East in Boston on 26 March 2011. You can also sample a few MP3s after the jump.
