Speaking on the new track, Calmgrove's Eric Guzman shares: "Tossing In My Sleep came to form during the peak of quarantine. We had a Dropbox full of ideas and when it came to start picking ideas out to work on, that particular idea stuck out to us."
"I wrote the lyrics about feeling stuck in a cycle and how all of the ebbs and flows of life can keep me up at night." Guzman continues. "We recorded this song with Zach Tuch (Movements, Silverstein, Touché Amoré) and during the process we reached out to Brad from Locket to have a feature on the track. Brad was super cool to work with and crushed his verse. We hope you all enjoy “Tossing In My Sleep” and can’t wait to show you what we have next!"
Formed in early 2018 on the outskirts of Los Angeles, Calmgrove has emerged onto the scene with a well-honed balance of alternative rock, pop-punk and emo, delivering with an assured cohesion, grit and honesty. As first seen on 2018 debut single "Lifelong", Calmgrove's elements of urgency intertwine with hook-heavy melodies and edgy punk tones.
Nodding to Southern California pop-punk of yesteryear, with the execution of their more angst-laden, present-day contemporaries, Calmgrove unveiled debut EP Light On Your End in fall 2019. A raft of recognition soon followed, including press support from Alternative Press and Rock Sound as well as spots on multiple Spotify editorial playlists. Supports with Bayside and In Her Own Words, saw the Covina outfit showcase their live set in front of sizeable crowds.
2022 single "Jade" saw Calmgrove bounce back from the pandemic slump with another blast of captivating alternative rock, marrying rousing hooks with a grit and edge that's equally prevalent on the band's new single.
Collaring Brad Garcia from Fearless Records' alternative rock crew Locket, "Tossing in My Sleep" is quintessential Calmgrove, with the emotive new single deftly balancing dark and atmospheric with hooky and infectious.
