Here we have some new music from L.A.’s Moderns. Moderns is the new project from our very own Let Em Riot who is bringing a breezy Indie flavour to his emotional Dreamwave style. Following their début of last month, Sub Urban, their latest release is Liar and it continues their journey thought deeply personal and relatable SynthPop tunes and once again proves that Alan Oakes is one of the finest songwriters in the genre.
Liar shows off more of Moderns’ sweeping and nostalgic Pop music. Exquisitely produced, the track sounds like it’s cut straight from an 80s teen movie and then remastered for 2014. Spacious and washed with reverb, the track is densely layered but never sounds crowded. Even Alan’s vocals are given room to breather amongst the airy pads and snapping snares. While you’re here check out the duo’s cover of Echo & The Bunnymen’s 1985 single Bring On The Dancing Horses which let’s these guys really revel in their 80s Indie side.
