Having grown up in cities and on coasts that span the length of the US, Caleb Groh’s music is a testament to what variety and change can breathe into someone’s musical output. Beginning with carefully placed drums, “Let It Groh” (pun appreciated) is quickly joined by cinematic swells, a groovy bassline, and buoyant, tropical-esq synth notes, all expertly arranged into an intriguing musical landscape. Groh’s vocals and lyricism, though, are what really set this jaunty track apart — resting comfortably on the web of booming percussion and bass is his sweetly emotive voice, giving a sense of something deeper on the mysteriously upbeat track.

Let It Groh is a testament to the subjectivity of love. It speaks about how love can go unrealized, if it’s pre-realized. It’s a song about the ever-relevant on-again-off-again, and how that sort of relationship only gains velocity via its highs and lows, until it’s forced to end in explosion.
