Lauren Ruth Ward is possessed by the truth in the indie rocker "We Are Grown Ups"

The latest offereing from Lauren Ruth Ward, We Are Grown Ups is a full on indie rocker with new wave-esque / folk rock frameworks. I thought instantly of 80's college rock ala the amazing R.E.M pushed through feral Patti Smith filters. The song grabs you by the collar, pushes you around and give you nice hugs too. It doesn't hurt that Lauren Ruth Ward writes such amazing musical prose and possesses an instrument in her voice that translates her truth in a big way. I love her gritty soulful ballsy sound and character that speaks to a life lived and lessons learned. Fuck yes. 

The band is Lauren Ruth Ward and Eduardo Rivera and they are based out of Baltimore, Maryland.
