‘How Goldfish Grow’ is a punchy melodic stab of indie rock coated in bright peppy vibes. Vibrant bursts in the chorus add a spring and lift to the track while crunching guitar adds passion and a sharp texture. Its bubbly indie with melancholic darker tones lying underneath. The shredding guitar solo adds a classic air guitar rock anthem vibe that’s kick ass. ‘How Goldfish Grow’ is a catchy animated track drizzled in pop elements with raw roots that give it an edge.
