If you live in Los Angeles and weren’t at the Com Truise concert at Exchange LA Saturday night, I am so sorry. The set list: a perfect blend of songs off all three releases. The visuals: stunning and in line with the vivid, but simplistic design of Com Truise’s album artwork. The crowd: so damn happy and kind (sadly, this is not always the case).

For me, listening to Com Truise is pure time travel. The synths rocket me back to a balcony in the suburbs of Houston in the summer of 2012. I’m sticky from that glorious humidity-induced sweat layer and my mind is a mile above my brain. The only concern among my best friends and I is whether or not to go for a swim. It was such a joy to revisit that time with Com Truise last weekend.
