Southern California-based quartet A Cursive Memory is comprised of teenage rockers Mark Borston-Smith (bass, keyboards, vocals), Shaun Profeta (drums, percussion, vocals), Colin Baylen (guitar), and Brian Bolen (guitar and vocals).
Their music combines subtle piano leads, churning guitars, twisting 80’s-style keyboards and huge, anthemic choruses for a sound that recalls influences as varied as All-American Rejects, The Killers and The Beach Boys.
You can check out their Myspace here. This video is one of my favorites, and it really caught my eye when it premiered on TRL today. It features them running around singing their song “Everything” behind and around celebrities (Britney, Paris, etc). Check it out if you’re up for a laugh/good music.
