Modern Alibi’s debut single “Seventies” is a promising start for the up-and-coming alternative rock band. The song’s driving music and vivid lyrical imagery successfully capture the intense emotions of hopeless attraction, with influences from alt rock greats such as Arctic Monkeys evident in the sound.
Holden Scott, the band’s founder and lead singer, has created a unique and energetic sound for the band with his original music. The heavy vibe of the music is balanced by grooving bass lines, modern drumbeats mixed with vintage guitar tones, and a uniquely rich and rhythmic vocal tone. The band’s sound has been described as a cross between the Arctic Monkeys and twenty one pilots, and this is evident in “Seventies”.
The memorable chorus embodies the uneasy feelings of losing control and trying to resist the temptation and adventure alluded to in the verses. The lyrics are relatable and well-crafted, and the band’s high energy performances add an extra layer of excitement to the already engaging music.
Modern Alibi’s Instagram page has been catching the attention of many new followers, including popular artists like Mike Posner and IDK How, who have praised the band’s cover versions of their songs. The band’s chemistry, charisma, and musical talent are clearly driving their growing popularity, and their sold-out shows in Charlotte and surrounding areas are a testament to this.
Overall, “Seventies” is a strong debut single from Modern Alibi, and I’m excited to see where this promising band goes next.
