Review: "Growing Pains" - Will Knox

If you could sit down with your younger self and tell them anything, would you? “Growing Pains” by Will Knox is a deeply moving piece of art that explores the healing of one past self to move forward and be better for yourself and your child. “Growing Pains” is such a delicate indie folk song that feels like walking through one’s timeline in order to resolve certain life moments for the future to smoothly come in. There’s something so warm about this track that you can just feel the sun on your face as you listen to it. Everyone loves a perceptive folk song and Will Knox has certainly aced the assignment as his storyteller abilities are no joke.

From the moment the song begins, “Growing Pains” creates such a specific ambiance that feels very familiar in a way. It’s so easy to feel a personal connection to this track because of Will Knox’s lyricism. There’s a clear devotion in his singing to become better it really moves you to hear. Additionally, the lines referencing seeking help are such a vulnerable thing to do in a song. Along with the gentle guitar, the use of strings and harmonies make such a great addition to this song because it makes everything more emotional. In this song, Will Knox is showing off his capability to heal with the power of song and it’s a great quality to have, to create a work of art about your progress so you can help others in similar positions as yourself.
