Caroline Kingsbury makes pop records so good they’ll get you misty. “In My Brain”, her first single release of 2019, was a beauteous, fist pumping pop anthem of the highest order. That was followed by “U Take It Back” , a glorious bit of neon tinged heartbreak that you could still dance to. Her latest “Breaking Apart” is anchored by a fat foggy drumbeat, shiny synth and may be even more perfect than the 2 aforementioned perfect tracks. It has the same emotional, widescreen feeling as Cyndi Lauper’s superb synth pop cover of “What’s Going On”, as well as some New Order-esque flourishes and soul crushing Robert Smith style lyrical heartache. It’s for driving away in tears but still feeling strong as fuck. All 3 tracks appear on Kingsbury’s new EP, also titled “Breaking Apart” and yes, it is very special.
