California pop-punk/emo quartet Calmgrove has released a brand new single.

“Retrace” is the band’s second single; their latest showcase of a sound brimming with potential; urgency and melody in equal measure.

The band spoke exclusively to Punknews, to discuss the new video.

Formed in early 2018 on the outskirts of Los Angeles, Calmgrovebelies 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.

This fall, as the 5-piece continues to diligently spread their sound across the state, including a support with genre mainstays In Her Own Words. Sophomore single “Retrace” gives Calmgrove’s quickly increasing band of fans another dose of emotive pop-punk.

“Retrace” is out now & streaming via Spotify.
