On February 21st Cursive will release their seventh full-length album, I Am Gemini, which is the musical tale of twin brothers Cassius and Pollock who were separated at birth. Frontman Tim Kasher says that the album's lead track – the guitar-driven, catchy "The Sun and Moon" – is an integral part of the album's story. "'The Sun and Moon' unveils the first time the estranged twin brothers of the story meet, providing an introduction to the theme of duality that is explored throughout I Am Gemini," Kasher says.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
