The quartet's third single appears on modernlove.'s EP 'monochrome blue' - arriving in September via Akira Records.
Irish four-piece modernlove. have announced a headline show at Dublin venue The Workman's Club and released the brand new music video for their latest single 'lmk (if you wanna see me)'.
The Hot for 2019 outfit - comprising Barry, Cian, Danny and Graham of Drogheda - explore the complexities of the modern lives of twenty-somethings. Even though their lives are still complicated, the band have already nailed their sound, delivering polished indie-pop with a glossy '90s sheen and intricate details.
modernlove. have announced their debut EP monochrome blue, due September 1st on Akira Records (Henry Green, Zola Blood, Shura, CHINAH). The 6-track project confronts issues like romance, rejection, 21st-century communication and the daily impact of all three.
Amid swirling synths, mechanical vocal effects, and rapid-fire percussion, 'lmk (if you wanna see me)' evokes a feeling of being simultaneously overwhelmed and isolated. The accompanying video echoes the sense of detachment, as the camera drifts in and out of focus on the lead singer chasing something he'll never reach.
"'lmk (if you wanna see me)' is about a formative period of your life ending. We wrote it during lockdown which inspired the somber, detached feel of the song," modernlove. said of the new number.
The track follows on from previous singles 'Liquorice' and 'Bop' - both of which received strong playlist support from Spotify and international radio airplay. Impressively, the outfit scored a BBC Introducing session alongside an interview recently. Hot Press premiered their June 2020 single 'If You Wanna See Me'.
To celebrate the EP release, modernlove. will be playing their first London show at The Social on November 12th and will play the Workman's Club Cellar on Friday, November 5th.
Tickets from €15 go on sale this Friday at 9am from Ticketmaster.ie.
