Welcome to the "Daily Song Drop": theguysfrom.com's song of the day feature where our resident indie music writer and former DJ Shaun Cordingley features a song every weekday that he feels you need to hear.
Brave Face - Modern Whale
Modern Whale is a (brand) new indie rock band from Brooklyn who just recently released their debut and second singles' (as in, in the past couple of months), and have also released some clever and interesting videos to go along with them. Today on Daily Song Drop we're going to chat a bit about their latest single (released about 12 days ago) "Brave Face".
Check out the official video below:
"Brave Face" is the best kind of indie pop rock: it's not only catchy, but it's very well played (that drumming...that guitar solo), and it keeps it's energy up musically, allowing the vocals to take chances, and even (at parts) give the impressions that the lyrics are being pulled along by the energy of the band. It's a really neat balance between the two, as the urgency of the drumming and the electric guitar (when it kicks in) really punch "Brave Face" up, and somehow the vocals just float on top.
It is going to be interesting to hear Modern Whale develop their sound, and see where they end up when they start looking at making an album, as they have a really good indie rock base to start from.
Here's the June 2017 DSD Playlist! We're only missing one track this month (as is tradition)! This months list was actually one of the harder ones for me to put together into something that feels (at least sort of) cohesive...I'm not sure why, but I am happy with the way it turned out in the end!
I've also heard you, and here it is: theguysfrom playlists are now available on Spotify! You can find us by looking for theguysfrom on Spotify, click on this link for the June '17 Spotify List...I will also embed the last months' playlist on every Friday DSD.
Come on back tomorrow for our next Song of the Day!
