An earnest pop-rock band from York, Pa., Kingsfoil just self-released their second full-length album, A Beating Heart Is A Bleeding Heart, and went around the U.S. on a fall tour. It was their first time on the road with new drummer Frankie Muniz, and by the time the band rolled into WXPN for a Key Studio Session on the eve of Hurricane Sandy, they were tight, locked-in and impressive. The full band – which also features guitarist / keyboardist Tristan Martin, bassist Tim Warren and singer-guitarist Jordan Davis – rocked out three snappy songs from the record that easily called to mind fellow pop-minded bands like Keane, fun. and The Fray. Wrapping the set, Davis turned in a moving solo performance of the piano ballad “Giving.” Download the set below, and look for the band to play its last gig of 2012 at The Chameleon Club in Lancaster on December 29.
