Modern Me – Dead To Me [Review]

Indie five-piece Modern Me have just released their brand-new single ‘Dead To Me’.

‘Animals’ brings about a blend of real musical capability with the seamlessness of each element of each instrument bringing its own skill to the table. A real modern, almost synth like sound has been created out of the basic elements of any band with two guitarists, a vocalist, drummer and a bassist, it sounds like there is a whole other level Modern have created on this track.

Founded on a childhood friendship between vocalist Adam Lamah and guitarist Michael Paez, Modern is a San Diego-based indie rock project. Having grown out of the local music scene together and having a shared love for the pop punk of the early 2000s, Modern is a very tightknit band. Convening in 2015 with producer Adam Castilla of indie-pop band “The Colourist” to interpret their influences, like Death Cab For Cutie, New Found Glory and Angels And Airwaves, into a more modern formula.

Receiving heavy airplay for their debut track on San Diego’s 91X FM, Modern Me debut a more developed sound in 2018 channelling the modern blends of The Killers, the cunning of Young The Giant, and the quirkiness of Joywave.

‘Dead To Me’ was produced by Castilla of ‘The Colourist’ and mixed by Claudius Mittendorfer who has also worked with the likes of Muse, Panic! At The Disco and Royal Blood. Its safe to say that no element of this track has been left behind or untouched by a love for modern twists or childhood influences.
