Mode Moderne

Mode Moderne might sound like an amalgamation of all the new wave and post-punk bands whose names you scribbled longingly into your junior high notebook, but their sound has a uniquely, err, modern bent. Over clanging cymbals and stabs of synths, vocalist Phillip Intilé lends his dark croon to surreal, lovey-dovey lyrics like, “I am one in a million/She is three-foot-seven/Wouldn’t have it any other way.” Listen and download (via Nylon) below.
