Their debut monochrome blue EP, released last September, saw modernlove. combine their early work into a statement debut offering. Featuring the singles Liquorice, 2 Missed Calls and lmk (if you wanna see me), they received strong playlist support, landing on New Music Friday UK, Fresh Finds, Alt-Pop, and The Pop List on Spotify and New Music Daily, New In Alternative and Breaking Alternative on Apple Music. They also received radio support from BBC R1, BBC 6 Music, BBC Ulster, XS Manchester, Across The Line and Radio X; were named as the Official Charts Ones To Watch; and featured in the Irish Times 15 Fine Music Acts To Listen To In 2022. Live sessions with BBC Introducing and Seconds Away have also helped to cement their position as one of the most exciting up and coming acts in the country.
As the name suggests, modernlove. explore the complexities of the modern lives of twenty-somethings. Even though their lives remain complicated, Barry, Cian, Danny, and Graham, all from Drogheda, have already nailed their sound, delivering polished indie pop with a glossy 90s sheen and intricate details.
My life is a soundtrack, i track my life through music, photography is my passion, my escape, my expression. Without both i have pieces missing, thankfully i’m blessed and get to combine both.
Born in Manchester, lived in Australia for 22 years where i was heavily involved in the Australian Music Industry, firstly in bands (Singer) and then managing bands (all original), I moved back to the UK, Wales specifically 10 years ago and married my childhood sweetheart and life is good.
