Modern Studies release a new single, ‘Heavy Water’
It’s taken from the forthcoming album ‘The Weight Of The Sun’, due out 8th May on Fire Records – which wil be available on ‘Sunburst Splatter’ vinyl limited to 300 copies with lyric sheet before reverting to boring old (in appearance, not sound) standard black LP / CD.
The quartet’s third studio LP follows 2016 debut ‘Swell To Great’ and ‘Welcome Strangers’, from 2018.
The foursome – songwriters Emily Scott and Rob St John, with Pete Harvey and Joe Smillie, – largely recorded their new material at Harvey’s home-run Pumpkinfield studio in rural Perthshire,
Of the new material, Scott says: “A lot of life was lived in the last two years. Perhaps we’re showing a rawer, truer connection to things. I feel, and hope, when listening, that the overriding sense is joyful, though.”
“This is an attempt to weave something hopeful from it all,” adds St John.
