Vancouver's Mode Moderne are wrapping up a short East Coast tour -- their first American shows -- with two dates in NYC with Plastic Flowers: Lit Lounge on Thursday (6/7) with Black Marble and Contra, and Shea Stadium on Friday (6/8) with Night Visions.
As their name might suggest, Mode Modern owe a lot to '80s mope rock and their new mini-LP Strange Bruises is loaded with moody basslines, glistening synth-lines, delay-ridden guitars and vocals that fall on the melodramatic end of the spectrum. Perfect for any dark club with a fog machine. You can stream Strange Bruises below and watch a video for Mode Moderne's single, "Nightly Youths."
