The Modern Strangers have managed to imbue their unique brand of indie pop with effervescent electronic beats and flickers of disco since their inception just a few years ago.
Brotherly led, those blood harmonies have grown intertwined since their childhood.
Their latest offerings have continually built on that same primordially oozing 80's tinged sound we came to love, with a new set of measured and vibrant material from their songbooks aired tonight.
Following the release of their EP ‘Visions’ in July the boys took to the road, announcing a headline UK tour culminating in homecoming Saturday night show at Oslo, London on October 26th.
Quite the night, weaving through their new and previous releases alike.
Stand out - the dreamy vocals of ‘Magic Hour’ and ‘Visions' reminiscent of a halcyon English summer not long faded, sat perfectly alongside fan favourites ‘Margarita’ and ‘Coco Hello’.
Chanted back at them by their dedicated and faithful following, that lysergic tinged delivery still makes for an intoxicating and heady mix.
Tonight bares testament to the fact The Modern Strangers vitality remains fresh and full of promise. A night on the dancefloor with them is still rollicking bloody good fun.
