SO’CAL PUNKS CALMGROVE PREMIERES NEW VIDEO
(Covina, CA – 19th December, 2018) California pop-punk/emo quartet Calmgrove has released a brand new single.
“Keep Close” comes as the follow up to the band’s breakout anthem “Retrace”, which dropped over the summer.
The band spoke exclusively to Already Heard, to discuss the new video.
|Formed in early 2018 on the outskirts of Los Angeles, Calmgrove belies their inexperience with a well-honed balance of pop-punk and emo, delivering with an assured cohesion, grit and honesty. As first seen on March’s debut single “Lifelong”, Calmgrove’s elements of urgency intertwine with hook-heavy melodies and edgy punk tones.
Nods to Southern California pop-punk of yesteryear, with the execution of their more angst-laden contemporaries, Calmgrove has worked hard playing shows across California, earning a reputation as a regional workhorse in the process.As 2018 draws to a close, the 5-piece continues to diligently spread their sound across the region, with a number of winter shows, including a support with genre mainstays In Her Own Words. Following on from the release of sophomore single “Retrace”, “Keep Close” gives Calmgrove’s quickly increasing band of fans another dose of emotive pop-punk.“Keep Close” is out now via YouTube and Spotify.
