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.
