Irish band modernlove (stylised lower case) have released a corking new single, “Follow You”, via Akira Records. A band about to break through to the bigtime, we say…
Follow-up track to “Us”, the indie rock act continue with more of the bold and blistering pop-rock sound for which they have earned a reputation.
The track nods to The 1975 in its hooky vibe and vocal timbre, produced and mixed by Tom Leach (Col3trane, Lewis Capaldi, The Streets) and mastered by Kevin Tuffy (Alfie Templeman, Matt Maltese).
“Follow You” is a love song about the early stages of infatuation in a relationship; about finding yourself in a relationship so intimate that spending each waking moment together still isn’t enough, hence the lyric ‘When you fall asleep I’ll follow you’.
The band wanted to write a song that resonated with the nostalgia of those same naïve infatuations, that took them back to when we they first started the band as teenagers, finding themselves as people as well as artists.
Their debut EP, “Monochrome Blue”, released in September last year, saw modernlove combine their earliest work into a statement debut offering.
Featuring the singles “Liquorice”, “2 Missed Calls” and “lmk (if you wanna see me)”, they received strong playlist support, and hit the airwaves on radio at BBC R1, BBC 6Music, BBC Ulster and Radio X among others.
They were named as the Official Charts ‘Ones To Watch’ and featured in the Irish Times ’15 Fine Music Acts To Listen To In 2022.’
Barry, Cian, Danny, and Graham, all from Drogheda, have nailed their own sound and will open many new doors with this new single. Lots of big announcements to come soon….
