On May 15th, Vancouver dark-dance band Mode Moderne celebrated the North American release of their new EP, Strange Bruises, on Little Organ Records. Centered around the music of Clint Lofkrantz, Felix Fung, and Philip Intile, Mode Moderne combines synths with chorusy, reverby guitars that instantly bring to mind some favorite moody pop songs from the 1980s. The band made their New York debut in early June, including a stop at our studios to record this exclusive live session.
Featured song: “Strange Bruises”
