Miracles Of Modern Science are an unconventional rock band, creating explosive pop using an ensemble of mandolin, violin, cello, upright bass, and drums. Beginning at Princeton University, early versions of the group stormed open mics and gathered members from the school’s orchestras and jazz band to build the impressive force that they’ve now become. The guys played some new songs and sat down with Travis to talk about their unique instrumentation, how weird peanut butter and pickles are (not actually a bad combo, really), and the best band Halloween costume ever.
Featured song: “Singularity”
Miracles Of Modern Science’s MEEMS ep will be out 2/19 in digital, cd, and 12” vinyl formats.
