The Skinny

Throughout, Grow Up is a bracing and vital antidote to genre norms, and shares a worldview that nourishes both heart and head. A huge undertaking, a staggering achievement. You need this.

God Is in the TV

It’s a lazy comparison given that everyone who writes about Desperate Journalist makes it ... they do sound like The Smiths, because they’ve grasped exactly what The Smiths were about – not a jangly indie band fronted by an Oscar Wilde wannabe, but a loud, powerful rock beast who also had no fucking choice.

Drowned in Sound

A few more years playing together has refined Desperate Journalist’s songwriting significantly. There’s more emotional and musical depth to the songs on Grow Up, the slow-dance of ‘Purple’ being probably the biggest example of this.

Absolutely amazed by this album coming out of nowhere.
One of the year's best, no doubt....
