Review

There's a timeless quality to the electronica-tinged folk fare Modern Studies make. A familiar feeling and timbre, subtle brass, gentile strings and gradually rising sense of crescendo, often from the quietest of beginnings ('Signs of Use', for example). Combined with male and female vocal harmonisation, it makes for compelling work to say the least. Perhaps folk rock is all wrong, though, if we stick to presumptions and expectation of the term. 'Brother' hazily rolls through a groove-laden five minutes, slowly adding layers of funk-inflected percussion, lunging bass and guitar licks abound. 'She' is an altogether more sombre experience, melodies on a downward trajectory throughout. 'Spaces' adding further depth to a similar arrangement. Earthy and organic, hushed but also loud, it's an accomplished and quietly commanding testament to the power of innovative songcraft.
