Some of the original versions of the songs on Growing Seeds were written during the summer of 2011, recorded in Hannes’ bedroom on his computer and using borrowed equipment from his roommate. He did everything himself except the mastering which was handled by Viktor Ottosson (Street Drinkers, Järtecknet). Four of the songs ended up on a cassette on Posh Isolation released in 2011. Shortly after that he began writing new songs and re-working some of the pieces during the fall and then recorded them in January/February 2012.

Lust for Youth feels neither lustful nor particularly youthful: The work of one Swedish guy holding down two or three notes on a Casio and declaiming tonelessly, like he's straining to make himself heard over a supermarket PA system, it feels about as sensual as a tomb. If it evokes any lust at all, it's the vampiric sort, as if Gary Oldman, in all his blade-licking, scenery-chewing, Frau Helga-wig sporting Bram Stoker's Dracula glory, had composed a minimal wave album for his beloved instead of crossing oceans of time . His name is Hannes Norrvide, and Growing Seeds has the obsessive feel of something banged out in one demented trance. The sound is corroded and thin, and some of the songs are so defaced by fuzz that they're barely legible.
Swedish electro-pop act Lust for Youth is the work of solo musician Hannes Norrvide, and with second proper full-length Growing Seeds, the project has grown into an all-encompassing atmosphere of dark sounds and struggling emotions. The caustic synth-pop Lust for Youth spins definitely fits in with the darkwave circles of the late 2000s and early 2010s, calling on the same remnants of early-'80s synth-wave cassette releases that inspired the minimal harshness of Xeno & Oaklander, Led Er Est, and the whole Minimal Wave records roster.
This album has an average beat per minute of 124 BPM (slowest/fastest tempos: 110/146 BPM). See the BPM profile of this album. Tracklist - Growing Seeds.
Growing Seeds’ isn’t an album for a bus ride. Without your full attention it’ll sound like bits of old machinery making out. Instead, take it to a dark and smoke-filled room. Try a little light bondage. Because even though Lust For Youth is a much more dance-orientated project than most of the stuff on New York label Sacred Bones (the pig-fuck rock of The Men, the goth-opera of Zola Jesus), it still lives in the gloom. Opening track ‘Behind Curtains’ is all sad and battered synths, and ‘It’s You’ pulses like a lost Primal Scream track with its breathy stalker call of It’s you/It’s always been you. Instrumentals ‘Planted A Seed’ and ‘La Rouge’ buzz and hum, and throughout the album there’s an ominous churn that sounds like a heartbroken machine.
