Emerging from Wisconsin is producer, singer and songwriter Restless Modern. With over 23 million Spotify streams under his belt, this talent has already picked up attention from the likes of Billboard, Lyrical Lemonade, MTV and Atwood.
In an interesting twist to new music, his new single ‘I Hate That I’m Addicted to the Internet’ is a 50’s inspired pop song that looks into our online traits and behaviours.
“The algorithms of today’s online world are a sleight of hand trick in which your personal agency of choice is cleverly replaced with a curated buffet of predetermined options.
