Modern Rivals EP – The Accidental . . . Killer
The intensity of some of this band’s quicker numbers, rivals that of another band that is quite modern: ‘Arcade Fire’. While Arcade Fire is from Montreal, Canada and Modern Rivals hail from New York City, me thinks they are partaking of familiar vapours! They are under the influence of an uncontrollable substance that helps them craft grooves to shake to and acoustic guitar led manifestos to pump you up—not for violence, but for the sheer joy and celebration of life. This wild collaboration—greater than the personal contributions—has a future, one that I am gladly queuing up for.
We went deep into the wilderness (of Prospect Park) last weekend and filmed an acoustic performance of “To My Friends.”
