THIS MONTHS ARTIST PROFILE: Modern Space
Formed in 2014, Modern Space have spent their brief existence becoming one of Canada’s most promising young bands on the rise. Catching their first break in 2016 by supporting Hamilton rockers Arkells across Canada, the Toronto quintet followed that up with the release of their spirited debut EP, Before Sunrise. The debut single from that EP was the irresistible “Pen To Paper,” which climbed to #5 on the Alternative charts. When it came time to re-enter the studio, the band had already spent time writing in Los Angeles, Vancouver, and of course, Toronto, before settling on Brooklyn, where they would work with Canadian legend-in-the-making, Gus van Go (Hollerado, Arkells, The Stills). Modern Space are now set to release a new EP. which immediately marks a great leap forward from the tenderfoot songs they laid out on Before Sunrise. Channelling influences such as The Vaccines and The Strokes – whose song “The Modern Age” inspired the first half of the band’s name – Modern Space have returned with six new songs that beam with a newfound assuredness.
