The instrumentals and vocals are perfectly combined, each song includes brilliantly timed guitar riffs and and solos, and most importantly the Album introduces a wide range of seemingly independent songs that somehow manage to work perfectly with each other creating a fantastic musical journey. I cannot wait to see where the band goes next.

Active Bird Community started in the suburbs of NYC when its members were still in middle school. Guitarists Tom D’Agustino and Andrew Wolfson and bassist Zach Slater stuck together while attending different colleges, before rounding out the band’s line-up with the addition of drummer Quinn McGovern. Since then they have relocated to Brooklyn, self-released three albums and a bunch of EPs. Which brings us to the release of ‘Amends,’ their first album for Barsuk.
Speaking about the new single the band, says It’s a list of won’ts. A motivational speech telling myself to not let good days become bad days. Needless to say, life doesn’t work like that.

This is the third single to be released from the bands forthcoming album, following on from their recent Nick D’Agostino-directed video for ‘Baby It’s You’, which was released last week.
