So So Modern

Yet again I bid thy good morn.

This morning was supposed to be about me going to school, learning everything about physical chemistry, coming back from school and feeling like a genius.

What actually happened was that, fair enough I woke up, but then I started listening to So So Modern.

So So Modern are a bunch of kiwi's who make "math-rock" via precise percussion and hypnotic riffs in the same style as say Foals or Battles. Sometimes throwing in some "post-hardcore" elements in the same style of say, Les Savy Fav. That sounds like they've got a winning ticket.

Even though their debut album 'Crude Futures' was only released in February, it has been racking up lots and lots of listens and fans. Me included.

'Berlin' is a slow burner and I guess a step in a new direction for So So Modern, but it sounds awesome in all of it's over 6 min glory. I really wanted a higher quality video on here for Berlin, but this will have to do. And I do like the description for the video: Rare footage of 1980's Ukrainian super-group So So Modern playing in the staff swimming pool at Chernobyl. Dated 25/04/86

Here's their official video for 'The Worst Is Yet To Come'

And here's a video that really did make me smile and all happy and shit when the synths really did kick in: 'Synthgasm'
