Monday Morning Album Stream: Mode Moderne "Strange Bruises"
It makes me happy when I discover new bands. They don't even necessarily need to be "new" but if it's the first time I hear them, then they're new to me. Such is the case with Vancouver's Mode Moderne. It's easy to spot their influences -- a little bit of The Cure here, a good amount of New Order there, and a touch of The Smiths. With those reference points, it's no surprise that I should instantly fall for their latest release, Strange Bruises. It's very likely that a few of these tracks may end up on future mixtapes. Check them out on Facebook. In the meantime, take a listen to Strange Bruises and become immersed.
