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

Cold Weather Kids look ahead on debut single, "Shaken"

Cold Weather Kids believe that there's life after a bad break up on their buoyant debut single, "Shaken." Led by Allison and Ryan Scottie's passionate vocals, the pop-punk quartet counterbalance layers of electric guitar with start-stop rhythms as they keep their heads held high. The up-tempo romp sounds both familiar and inviting, crafting dynamic, energetic melodies that sound youthful and full of promise.

Catch the band perform live at Madame Siam on Thursday, August 1st. Juan Rodríguez

Adam Melchor's "Joyride" is a lesson in letting go

Adam Melchor's songs are stories about family—and how the experiences he's acquired with time gain a deeper meaning as he grows up. On his latest single, "Joyride," the LA-via-New Jersey singer-songwriter writes about the challenge of letting go when it's the best course of action to take, using his parents' stolen childhood truck as a symbol that mirrors their eventual divorce—a lesson in perspective that taught him to value those valuable moments before they're gone. The clamor of a trumpet only augments his reflection, an instrument that brings clarity of thought to his otherwise acoustic rumination.

"Joyride" follows the release of his sophomore EP, Plan on You, which was released earlier this year. Melchor will join Rodrigo and Gabriella on a string of tour dates, including a hometown show at the Greek Theater on July 23. Watch the accompanying video below. Juan Rodríguez
