Who is ACM?
A CURSIVE MEMORY
Either she loves you or shes left you. Luckily, A Cursive Memory has already written the soundtrack for both.
Because they know things change. And music is how you deal with it.
In fact, there has never been a time in their lives that they didnt want to break some hearts and climb some charts, in the words of founding member Shaun Profeta.
Changes (2/19/08 on Vagrant), their second full-length, is more streamlined, even catchier, and just anthemically huge. Inspired by the growth they and their sound have gone through since the last record, Changes is, they say half-jokingly, kind of like music puberty.
ACM is the twin guitar and vocal attack of Profeta and Colin Baylen, with Mark Borst Smith and newcomer Dillan Wheeler locking down the rhythm. The So-Cal 4-piece has already mailed in their dues with DIY-style touring, at one point locking their merch guy, Gooch, in the trailer for half an hour. oops!
That baptism by fire paid off. They went from being a high school band to Vagrants latest signing, going coast-to-coast on national tours.
Theyve already held their own onstage with Jimmy Eat World, HelloGoodbye, Boys Like Girls, and more. If they get their way, itll be months of hitting the road with more bands like tourmates New Found Glory and Senses Fail, more hotel rooms and a van that smells like dudes.
After one listen to Everything, can you really not hear thousands of kids singing along? Well they already are. Perfect Company, already featured in the season finale of the Simple Life, is only one of the albums rockers with more hooks than a prosthetics ward. Think All-American Rejects, think Mae, think the Killers, but when you hear Changes, youll think again.
Because theyve been well beyond the point of imitation-as-tribute for years.
So age, experience whatever. Heres the bottom line: the only way anyone is getting A Cursive Memorys songs out of their head is with a lobotomy. And that's expensive.
A bunch of friends wrote some songs once. Now theyre going to do it all. Its time for some Changes.
