Modem The Band
“Sometimes being inside is excruciatingly creative, locking down everything mentally leads to pathways which surely bring about surprises. Free will and basic freedoms are juxtaposed with the civil liberty deprived from societies during the covid lockdowns.”
“Incarceration” is the new single for Modem the Band, taken from their new album “Chapter I: Inspiration”,
out on November 02nd, 2020, on Grey Dome Records.
The video, an harsh dance of menacing industrial machineries, was premièred on Oct. 30th by It’s Psychedelic Baby Mag.
The song, written during the first lockdown in March, features minimal, claustrophic post-punk,
with scathing criticism, crepuscolar mood and hypnotic, infectious synths,
Modem The Band are a post-punk coldwave project from Larissa, Greece, with minimal, schizoid, tuneful attitude.
They released on September 07th their first single “Equal”, to worlwide appreciation.
The album “Chapter I: Inspiration” is released on November 02nd, 2020, Vinyl 12″/Digital, through Grey Dome Records.
Imagine a world without a modem…
Music is the ultimate connection of soul, mind and body and our love for music makes us connect as much as we can with the world around us and people who share the same concept.
Modem The Band was created in 2018 in Larissa, Greece. It was the idea of Constantine which soon became a reality, consisting of a labyrinth of synth, dark and post punk sounds. Constantine (aka Zakk Minimal), a long time music producer, had the need to experiment both musically and expressively.
The initial line up of the band was Constantine, She (Vocals), Johny Teo (Guitars) and Theodore (bass) but after a year of live performances, musical quests and drastic changes the lineup shifted and so did the sonic direction of the band. Constantine and Theodore added Polydefkis in vocals for new album recordings, plus guest vocalists at times.
Modem The Band aim to share their musical aesthetics, always create fresh, modernized music breaking new grounds of sounds and at the same time creating new genres. “Chapter I: Inspiration”, our debut album is based on the music we loved and became a part of it, a blend of modular sounds and analog instrumentation
