Hailing from Los Angeles, CA with a signature heavy emo-pop sound, Good Terms are bringing a fresh, celebratory, and cathartic vibe to the alternative music scene. Their songs combine poppy earworm melodies catchy enough to get your grandma singing along, heavy stank-face inducing riffs, emo songwriting guaranteed to get you deep in the feels, tasty boomer-approved guitar shredding, the juiciest bass playing money could buy, and filthy breakdowns so disgusting that you’ll want to take a shower after listening. In their recordings, Good Terms combines this delicious musical nectar with organic modern production & mixing, which to date has been handled entirely in-house. They blend the slick & hi-fi sounds of today with that tried and true “hell yeah brother” rock-n-roll feeling of yesterday. Even at their most polished, you’ll still always feel like you’re listening to a ripping live band.
“Man that sounds pretty sick,” you’re saying, “but what is this band like live?” A mf party, that’s what. The band is made up of four lifelong best friends, and that level of friendship & brotherhood within them is extended to everyone in the audience. You’ll have a Step Brothers “did we just become best friends?” moment with everyone in the positive & inclusive community the band is building. At Good Terms shows, you can expect elite showmanship, hilarious stage antics, top-notch performances, maybe a little crying in the pit, non-stop grooves that keep you dancing, and massive hooks that keep you singing along. Good Terms shows are an opportunity to all feel good together, practice some self-love, and absolutely rage our faces off.
2023 will see an onslaught of new singles from the band, each one more unique than the last. Good Terms are building on the success of their viral “Jump” cover & their debut album Turning Point, which the band independently released in 2021. The album’s blend of easycore and sadboi pop punk has proven to be a comfortable foundation to build on, but Good Terms have their sights set on creating the future, not on regurgitating the past. Your friendly neighborhood emo band is all grown up and ready to take over the world.
