Grown Ups is a band from the Midwest, signed to Topshelf Records. Although the band comes from the Illinois/Indiana area, the sound they convey is more like what the bands in the Virginia area are producing. Most of the songs address real-world problems, but catch may catch the listener off-guard by sounding upbeat upon first listen.
Although the band has broken up, the music is still relevant. The sound of Grown Ups is modern yet reminiscent, and sounds great while driving! For a reference as to sound similarity, Timeshares was listed as a suggested listen as well. Timeshares can be streamed here: http://timeshares.bandcamp.com/
