As the name suggests, Irish indie-rock outfit modernlove. explore the complexities of the modern lives of twenty-somethings. 

Today marks the release of the group’s new single, ‘Don’t Wanna’. The track sees the band focus on a more romantically-charged side to their sound, marking the song as one of their most heartfelt releases to date.

“‘Don’t Wanna’ is a song about desire. We’ve all had that weird feeling at some point where you can’t decide whether you might be kinda into one of your close mates… It touches on the difficulty of navigating friendships and relationships as a young person when such passionate feelings and sex are involved. We wanted to capture that excitement in the sonics as well, it’s definitely one of our poppiest tunes but still got that rocky edge to it.”
