Cursive - I Am Gemini

Cursive are back, and as ambitious as ever...

That Cursive are still producing consistently decent records this far into their career is a commendable achievement in itself, and seventh album ‘I Am Gemini’ is as ambitious as the previous six. This time around, their jangly indie-rock explores the journey of two twin brothers separated at birth through a procession of the schizophrenic (‘Drunken Birds’) and the more accessible (‘Warmer Warmer’) with largely satisfying results. While Cursive are as distinctively niche as ever, they still pen awkward music for awkward people better than the plethora of other bands imitating their sound.
