-Kingsbury has shared the stage with Holopaw, Stellastar*, The Reputation, Matt Pond PA, The Billy Nayer Show, Chuck Prophet, Via Satellite (The Album Leaf), and Timonium to name a few. They have played throughout the eastcoast, and released two highly praised EP's, 'This Place is Coming Down' and 'The Open Sea.' The Open Sea reviews... "Kingsbury are buried in a resonant cavern full of downcast melodies and spacious arrangements, with a slightly trippy patina mixing up the metaphor. They sound nothing like that giddy pop band The Kingsbury Manx (which is why I avoided them for so long), and this EP (their second) is a fine addition to the canon of Orlando-bands-who-shouldn't-be-from Orlando. The linchpin in the group's sound is the interplay between the piano (which drives most of the melodies) and the guitars (which provide most of the atmosphere); while the rhythm section is stretching-stretching-stretching, these instruments are tussling, making for an earthy yet extraterrestrial sort of racket. Singer Bruce Reed could probably sing in a little bigger voice than his subsonic mumble/whisper, but why should he bother?" -Orlando Weekly "This Orlando quintet come from the Red House Painters school of emotional hard knocks, as the lonely piano riff of the title track to their second EP bears a remarkable resemblance to Mr. Kozelek's "Mistress" and singer Bruce Reed gets the breathy, forlorn, "poor, poor, pitiful me" vocal inflections down pat. His sexy, deliberate, Mark Knopfler-meets-Steve Kilbey vocals on "Oh Captain, My Captain" imbue the track with a distinct Church vibe, which is borne out by the meandering ooze of it's musical accompaniment - sort of like psychedelic molasses... ...Kingsbury have hit upon a formula as "an American Church" that is unique and worthy of further exploration." - 8/10, Jeff Penczak, foxydigitalis.com "The Open Sea is haunting, melancholic and capable of emotional enormity." - orlandocitybeat.com "Hidden beneath the lush, gentle waves of the new release, The Open Sea EP, rests the weary bones of haunting and sophisticated dream-core. The three tracks laid onto this disc are sparse, beautiful and fading. It's the eerie sound the moon makes slipping across the motionless sea, the whispers of a cold ghost-ship seaman lost, longing for home. Their instruments and feel on this EP just seem to echo out into this expansive void; the sound that they achieve really is the vision of the open sea. It's impressive, and it recalls that same hopeless feeling Killing Moon chills into your heart." -Left off the dial.com "This CD is definitely going in my top favorites of the year. Kingsbury just released a teasing three-song EP, making me bite my fingernails for a full-length since I've already listened to this EP a billion times." - Connections.
