Cursive fans must say goodbye to the subdued, somewhat morbid tone they’ve come to associate with the indie-rock band from Omaha. Its latest full-length album,  I Am Gemini (released in February via Saddle Creek), strays quite a bit from previous albums; the band has shed some of its somberness by ditching its gloomy cello and now incorporates more of an energized pop feel. Even the lyrics are less depressing than what one would find in past fan-favorites, such as “The Recluse,” a song that appears to be about an emotionally troubling one-night stand. I Am Gemini brings an obvious change in style to the table andmay not pack a punch as strong as Cursive’s more serious work, but fans might appreciate the opportunity to have a bit more fun. Cursive performs with Cymbals Eat Guitars and Conduits at 8:30 p.m. at Union Transfer; tickets to the all-ages show are $15. —Lisa Henderson
