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.”


New Music: modernlove.

Irish indie outfit modernlove. create a bold style of pop-rock that is loaded with energy and vibrancy.

New single ‘Follow You’ serves as a rousing ode to the anthemic indie bangers of the early 00s that the boys grew up on.

“‘Follow You’ is a love song about the early stages of infatuation in a relationship. It’s about finding yourself in a relationship so intimate that spending each waking moment together still isn’t enough, hence the lyrics ‘when you fall asleep I’ll follow you’. Musically, we wanted to write a song that resonated with the nostalgia of those same naive infatuations and took us back to when we first started the band as teenagers finding ourselves as people as well as artists. A simple four chord structure that echoed the likes of bloc party, the cure and new order. A song that we could fully jam on together and jump around to.”

Already garnering acclaim from the likes of  Wonderland, Earmilk and Official Charts, this group could well have their biggest year to date.
