Named after Suzanne Paul's beauty product of the same name, Natural Grow are an all girl hardcore punk band from Wellington.

I eventually heard them on "The Arse End of the World" compilation released by Always Never Fun Records in 2011, and their two tracks "Young, Gifted, & Fat" and "RTDs" were fucking rad. This is angry, aggressive hardcore punk and their whole album is great. I'm not actually sure what year this was released, but I'm pretty sure it was around 2010-2011, check it out.

Its pretty awesome, real garage quality low fi stuff that will get you pissed on Christmas.
