Kingsbury eases the torment of loss on luminous new single, "U Take it Back"

The first time we heard of Caroline Kingsbury, a.k.a. Kingsbury, the then-21-year-old was going through a changing period in her life without the support system that she needed at the time. In the time that's passed, the singer-songwriter experienced love and lost it, facing her painful memories a newfound strength on her latest single, "U Take it Back." "You gave me something I never had / and then you take it back," she exclaims with devastating simplicity,  wrapping her salty-yet-sweet vocals over a backdrop of billowing synths and gossamer guitar lines. She invites a calm and stately atmosphere to soothe her unease,  reminding us that there's always comfort in melancholy.

Since then, Kingsbury has supported likeminded indie-pop acts like Aurora, NoMBe, and local artist Miya Folick. Up next is a month-long tour supporting Alex Lahey, which kicks off right here at The Troubadour on August 13. - Juan Rodríguez
