I Can't Grow Up
I 👏🏼 am 👏🏼 OB 👏🏼 SESSED 👏🏼 with 👏🏼 this 👏🏼 song! 👏🏼...... that is all 😇😅🥰
I love listening to demos, thank you so much for sharing! This is currently my favourite song to sing (and dance) to while doing house chores 🤩 any chance of you playing bass on tour?? 🙃
The demo is pretty close to the final version. Everything was already there. You seem more angry on the album one though , it was probably suggested by Mickey.
I can’t get enough of this song ! It’s been on repeat for the last week. I love hearing how it evolved from this demo, I’m so excited to hear all of Crybaby.
Literally y'all just keep releasing bangers for this album. I am really not trying to be cheesy by saying this, but your music just keeps getting better and better. I am so obsessed with the ENTIRE vibe of this song, from the music video to the promo photos. I love the entire song, every bit of it. Hearing the demo and where it came from is legit. Can't wait for the rest of Crybaby and tour!
Thanks for sharing the original demo!!!! With the roll out of songs for the new album, I have a new fave every time! ❤️
As a fellow DEHD head, I was super stoked that they were an inspiration for this song! I just got to see them live for the first time a couple weeks ago here in Minneapolis, and it was 🔥🔥🔥!!!!
Love all the songs off Crybaby you’ve released so far but this one? It’s one of the catchiest songs I’ve ever heard 🏻
Woahh that‘s so so so good! Truly one the best/catchiest songs I’ve ever heard :)
I seriously love this song so much. It's ALMOST tied with BWU. I've been listening to it a ton and watching the music video several times a day. I love it so much I even made a little keychain with the Spotify code on it. Also I love your cat
I can't get this song out of my head (not even trying, tho) and the video is 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
10/10 my fav ever
This is going to sound amazing live!
Great song, definitely worth the wait.
what a fucking job you did.
Nothing to add, aside asking to say hi to Sid on my behalf.
See you in weeks!!!
I love how the instrumentation drops out on the bridge (and on the final version, the first verse) to put the bass front and center. Also the Peter Hook influence. (Now I'm going to look up Dehd, which IIRC Sara also cited as an influence on her bass playing.) Any plans for S to play bass on this song live?
I can't believe this is the DEMO?
This is a great treat! Love listening to stories of the songwriting process, demos and growing together. It always gives me encouragement especially when I get stuck with stuff in life and writing lyrics.
I turned to Tegan and your writings on Substack and songs when I had to come up with a bilingual song in Feb this year. I usually write Chinese lyrics hence English lyrics are tough for me. I went through T&S songs to learn how to write English lyrics. The previous lyrics explanations helped a lot too. I managed to deliver the lyrics just in time in the end 😉
Thank you so much for all the earnest sharing! Looking forward to the new album and seeing you both in Singapore again soon! Aka please include Singapore in your Asia tour 😃
