There’s something stirring about the music that Modern Nature makes. The UK based trio plays between the lines of post-punk and indie rock with ease, signalling a form a genre mixing that your ears want more of as they hear the tones in which the band parallels their sound. On their new single “Seance” from their upcoming album How To Live due at the end of this month, the band finds a way to really drive home that the music they’re making is different in the best way possible.
When gently touched guitars open a song, it’s typically for a song that will stay that way. While the pace picks up quickly and throws that initial tone away, the intent is still there. The band goes into their own snappy time signature while giving you an intense yet softer sound than on previously released tracks, The use of synths is a nice touch, but it’s possibly the way the vocals are laid out that are the most intriguing. The intricate nature in how the song is played out forges its own path and the song proves further the winning attributes to the band’s sound.
The song can be streamed on all platforms or purchased in all online music stores while How To Live is available for pre-order on multiple formats directly from Bella Union before its August 23 release date. Modern Nature is on tour beginning August 16 at Green Man Festival in Breacon Beacons, Wales until September 22 at The Wedgewood Rooms in Portsmouth, GB. The band’s complete tour can be found here.
