I can’t help but wonder how much of Modern Tapes‘ bio is true; it may all be true. According to the bio, they formed in a bomb shelter last year, recording in claustrophobic underground conditions. Their sound is a play on that from a generation ago, tweaked and adjusted to be new and fresh. It’s a sound that blends a post punk efficacy with an influence of dark 80s new wave pop.
“Caroline” is their new video and it features the band performing while a woman dances. It includes plenty of oddities and video edits, like the one you see in the above photo. It includes plenty of other digital effects that… well, you probably haven’t seen. I’m definitely digging their sound and director Nir Ben Jacob’s work on “Caroline”.
