Deastro had this to say from London regarding his free EP:
This EP is inspired by Detroit and my friends there who I feel are a light in it. The title of it Grower represents what I feel is growing inside of peoples hearts and minds there. It is about human growth, so sometimes it can be messy or tragic all though I am not going to limit human experience to two adjectives or claim that I know the first thing about it.
There is a song called “forest arms” that is about an apartment complex that burned down near where I live. The fire started in the apartment of John Robinson and its cause is unknown. Robinson died and others were injured on top of the loss of this historic building. It really was a tragedy. The song itself I hope captures all aspects of the people of Detroit in its change in dynamics or at least some of them, I could never capture it all. I could never capture how proud I am of everybody there who keeps on loving each other. My only reason for writing music besides really enjoying music myself is that I hope to plant something worthwhile in the place where the people I care for exist. I really hope we can all grow and be growers learning to treasure every second and every feeling this world gives to us.
