Paste Magazine Active Bird Community – ‘Dead Legs’
By Chris DeVille
Active Bird Community are a Brooklyn rock band that creates freshness out of classic sounds. Specifically, on new single “Dead Legs,” they combine the ’90s indie rock throwbacks of LVL UP with the garage rock revivalism of the Strokes era with splendid results. It’s from the band’s upcoming album Stick Around, produced in New Paltz, NY by Chris Daly (PWR BTTM, Porches). Singer-guitarist Tom D’Agustino will fill you in on the content:
I think Dead Legs is kind of fantasy – like if I can just pay my rent and feed myself then I’ve got it figured out right? It’s also a way of critiquing how we normally think about growing up – you reach a certain age and then suddenly you’re an adult. I don’t think it works like that. I think we all stumble around trying to find our feet until we feel like we’re ok.
