Hello we are new here on Channel Pages and wanted to introduce ourselves. What an exciting platform for an independent band!
It's kind of sad, but the truth is that record labels and music industry gatekeepers look at a band's social following first and foremost before signing or working with them. We've had a few labels tell us they love the music, but to check back with them once we have grown our social media numbers.
So we need your help Youtube community! Take a listen to our music and see if it speaks to you. If you believe in us and our sound, please consider collaborating with us to help spread the word about our band. LISTEN FOR FREE: themodernelectric.com/music
The Modern Electric are the next great American rock band. They are
driven by the feeling that time is running out; that it is crucial to
express what really matters to loved ones before it is too late. They
believe that honest, authentic songwriting has the power to articulate
emotions that words cannot. Inspired as much by classic cinema as they
are David Bowie and ELO, they’ve coined the genre “cinematic rock” to
describe their powerful piano-charged sound. Each richly-orchestrated
pop symphony is led by a voice that has no comparison; a unique vibrato
saturated in soul and sensitivity.
Their latest album “Original Motion Picture Soundtrack,” produced by Mike McCarthy (Spoon, …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead), is being called “a movie for the ears”, “widescreen pop.” Like a coming
of age story about chasing crushes, surviving loneliness, and finding
close friends, it is timeless in its scope and undeniably contagious in
its melodic focus. Writing and directing a short film to accompany each
track on the album, the band has set themselves apart as true auteurs of
rock n’ roll – ambitious filmmakers as well as visceral songwriters.
They’ve brought their epic live show across the Midwest and to
festivals such as SXSW, CMJ Music Marathon, and WMC after being awarded
“Band of the Year” and “Album of the Year” in their hometown of
Cleveland, OH. The Modern Electric aren’t creating songs that mimic the
trendy sounds of the year. They are creating the kind of songs that are
put on mixtapes for loved ones; songs that memories are made to. These
are the kind of songs that become the soundtrack to a person’s life.
They are currently directing a new web series that shows what it
takes for a band to write, direct, and release a short film a month for a
full year. Entitled “Video Music,” the series gives a behind-the-scenes
look into the making of each critically-acclaimed music video.
