Modern Studies Live on Sunday 12th December 2021

Scottish quartet Modern Studies unite pastoral chamber pop and folk with a subtly experimental spirit. Blending lush vocal harmonies, kosmische-tinged rhythms and intricate arrangements, the band have released three critically-acclaimed LPs since 2016.

“There’s a charm within Modern Studies’ DNA which makes them, without fanfare or clamour, one of today’s most mesmerising outfits.” Prog (The Weight of the Sun)

“Sensitive, smart, inventive, cultured, brimming with complex ideas.” ★★★★ Record Collector (The Weight of the Sun)

“Old and new, sweet and sharp, Welcome Strangers holds you in an ambiguous, but utterly enchanting, embrace… songs that suggest a muddy-hemmed Jim O’Rourke lost in a field in rural Perthshire.” ★★★★ MOJO (Welcome Strangers)

“Melancholic magic… recalls Johnny Marr’s hazier reveries and the febrile, electrified folk of Polly Harvey’s Let England Shake.” 8/10 UNCUT (Welcome Strangers)

“Sit up and take note; Modern Studies are setting the standards for intelligent pop in 2018.” ★★★★ Record Collector (Welcome Strangers)

“A fantastic collection of woozy, lovely songs” – The Guardian (Welcome Strangers)

“This excellent second album, all subtly energetic rhythms, and just-so flourishes of brass and strings, a very contemporary-feeling blend of Scottish-hued indie, jazz, folk, tropicalia – you name it… sounding like two itinerant folk singers picked up from the side of the road and whisked off down the tidy motorways of an imagined future Britain” The Quietus, Albums of the Month (Welcome Strangers)

“Modern Studies have created something that feels as abstract as it does accessible, as complex as it is beautifully simple.” ★★★★ The Skinny (Welcome Strangers)

“Sublime… your brain, ticker and feet are moved.” Prog (Welcome Strangers)

“there is a calmness in its melancholy, a beauty in its blues. These are songs that see the mystical beyond the material, abstracted folk ballads awash in memory.” ★★★★ MOJO (Swell to Great)

“a gorgeous sound which lands somewhere between Belle & Sebastian at their most icily wistful, and Fairport Convention’s autumnal folk-rock.” The List (Swell to Great)
