Redondo Beach, CA four-piece MODERN COLOR made their international debut last month with the release of their single “Chromesthesia”, cut from their upcoming album of the same name, out this July via Open Door Records. Upon its initial release via Spotify, the track was featured on Alternative Press Magazine‘s “AP Discover” playlist.
Today, MODERN COLOR invites listeners to have another taste of their addictive mix of experimental, hardcore, shoegaze and heavy rock influences with another new track, “Shade” – this time accompanied by an official music video. The video is currently being featured via MetalSucks‘ “Unsigned & Unholy” column here.
With Chromesthesia, MODERN COLOR explores cerebral, thought-provoking themes within their songwriting. While the track “Chromesthesia” explored the idea of our varying human perspectives and expressions, “Shade” hones in on our common inability to overcome our own fears and doubts in order to do what is best.
“Shade” is about the uneasy feeling of being disconnected with yourself – about knowing what you want but constantly struggling to get past your own doubt and fear to get it. We shot and edited the video together with that vibe and feeling in mind,” states drummer/vocalist Vincent Nguyen.
Chromesthesia was engineered by Erol Ulug at Bright Lights Studios in Santa Ana, CA. “Chromesthesia” and “Shade” are both available for download via MODERN COLOR‘s Bandcamp page.
MODERN COLOR is currently planning a tour set to take place this summer and will release more new music soon. You can discover more about MODERN COLORat the links below:
