Cursive is an indie rock band from Omaha, Nebraska, United States. The band records for the label Saddle Creek Records, which is one of the Saddle Creek flagship artists. The band was formed in 1995 by Tim Kasher, Matt Maginn, Steve Pedersen (all formerly of Slowdown Virginia), and drummer Clint Schnase. In 1997, they released Such Blinding Stars For Starving Eyes. After a few years of touring the band broke up in 1998. They posthumously released The Storms of Early Summer: Semantics of Song in the fall of that year. A year later in the summer of 1999 the band reformed. Pedersen had started law school so Ted Stevens (formerly of Lullaby for the Working Class) stepped in and joined the band. In 2000, their album, Domestica, a concept album written like a one-act play documenting the lies, hate and deceit associated with a divorce, gained them much attention from fans and critics alike and they toured with At the Drive-In.

Total plays on over the last 6 months
    I wake alone, in a woman's room I hardly know.
    I wake alone and pretend that I am finally home.
    The room is littered with her books and notebooks.
    I imagine what they say, like,
    'shoo fly, don't bother me."

    Cut it out - your self-inflicted pain
    Is getting too routine
    The crowds are catching on
    To the self inflicted song
    Well, here we go again

    Your gentleman caller
    Well, he's been calling on another
    He loves his forbidden fruit
    And as it dribbles down his chin
    He cries "Baby I've been drinking with some friends
    A Gentleman Caller  -  460,170 plays
    There's a time
    And a place,
    This is neither the time nor the place.
    "Where do i fit in, in this jigsaw of a relationship?!?" Why should I play the fall guy to your love? I keep getting snubbed...
    What dumb luck, what dumb luck."
    Butcher the Song  -  386,114 plays
    And now we proudly present
    Songs perverse and songs of lament
    A couple hymns of confession
    And songs that recognize our sick obsessions
    So sing along
