about

Fresh off-the-cob with savoury retro-flavoured good vibes all round.

Featuring Mal Webb & Kylie Morrigan on horns and strings, Alex Burkoy (Tinpan Orange, The Cat Empire) on guitar, Charlie Mgee and Carlien Jeanne on vocals and produced by Melbourne sonic-artisan, Spoonbill, Grow a Garden sounds like it should be the new theme-song for Gardening Australia.

The story of a guy who is infatuated with a girl over her ability to grow fresh produce, Grow a Garden will warm the hearts and minds of every aspiring backyard-farmer, get you boogieing in your overalls and leave you with the kind of satisfaction that comes with eating a fresh-picked strawberry.

lyrics

Whenever I come to see you
I always find you outside
With your hands in the ground
Gettin’ down with anything that grows

And all I want to do is join you
In that morning sunshine
I wanna know, wanna know
How you grow all your vegetables

Cos we’re gonna grow a garden
We’re gonna grow a garden yeah
We’re gonna grow a garden, darling
Yeah.

Well, I saved you some seeds from my pumpkins and peas
And I can foresee we’ll get them growing like weeds
We could stay up real late and plant them by the moon

And we’re gonna make everyone jealous
When they see what we’ve got growing on the trellis
It’ll be raining down in our very own food monsoon

CHORUS

When we’ve made our beds, we're gonna raise that veg
Let the chickens out when they’ve laid their eggs
Growin’ asparagus spaghetti squash, strawberries,
Oh we can eat so much from our garden

CHORUS
