But, hopefully, Rave Ami is nowhere near calling it quits.
All Great Bands Break Up, which dropped today via Misra Records, is a catchy 10-track alt-indie thrill ride. Most notable is, “I Don’t Wanna Talk About It,” which is the sixth track on the album and Rave Ami’s second single.
The song transports listeners to a circa 2002 basement jam session – which is fitting since All Great Bands Break Up was written over a two-year period where the band members lived together in a house, and the basement doubled as a show and rehearsal space. The high-energy, fluctuating vocals paired with clear, midtempo guitar lick showcases Rave Ami's mastery of the indie-rock genre.
Rave Ami celebrates the new album tomorrow at Cattivo alongside Pittsburgh alt-rock band Talkers, who dropped its sophomore album, DIVE, today as well.
