British new wave/post-punk band Modern English have dropped their new single “Crazy Lovers“.
It’s the second taste of their long-awaited new album ‘1 2 3 4‘, produced by Mario J. McNulty (David Bowie, Lou Reed, Nine Inch Nails). The record features 10 new songs including the first single “Long In The Tooth”. Pre-order it here.
According to the press release, 1 2 3 4’s aim is to capture the energy and spirit of the band’s live shows and hark back to the sounds, raw energy, as well as the post-punk passion of its Mesh & Lace days. Recorded at Clubhouse in Rhinebeck, NY in the fall of 2022, directly after months of touring, the record will be their first official release since its 2016 Take Me To The Trees album.
Commenting on the track, Robbie Grey says:
“”Crazy Lovers” is a keyboard-forward, melodic rocker about being lost in sound, lost in a moment, and the creative process of love and life. Originally it was a very slow song that the producer Mario J McNulty suggested we speed right up; It was a great idea and gives it a lot of life, energy as well as a cool groove.”
