Good Terms have released their new single, “Drive-In” today. The track, which marks the first song from the band to prominently feature their guitarist Ivan Barry on lead vocals, touches on the disheartening feeling of being on the receiving end of someone else’s indecision. The timeless pop-punk track finds all three guitarists contributing vocally, each with a distinct tonality that interweaves throughout the song. Listen to the explosive song now below.
Of the song, the band explained, “’Drive-In’ is the songwriting brainchild of our guitarist Ivan Barry and was written during Summer 2020 at the height of the pandemic when options to nourish a budding relationship were extremely limited. Ivan made plans to go camping in Joshua Tree with someone he was seeing who ultimately ended up completely bailing on the trip at the last minute, which sent their entire relationship into a painful state of uncertainty. As a way to try and get his mind off everything, Ivan got dressed up and went to a drive-in movie theater by himself, where he found himself texting this person the entire time and missing them even more.”

Good Terms invites you to become a part of their community and participate in the catharsis they’ve found together.
