audiafauna's debut full-length album 'Grow Down' is a eclectic, creative and fresh sound that bridges the gap between acoustic and electronic music. The ensemble self-produced and recorded the album in their home studio which soulfully explores themes of life and death, love and heartbreak, and the core of the human experience.
