MODERN LOVE: Ensomhet Vet: 7” EP

Dark pop meets dark punk showered in sheets of minor chord. Tunes are simultaneously accessible and distant, and make me wish I knew Norwegian so I would know what the singer is on about. Not an easy trip, but satisfying for those who like their tunes with a bit more protein than throwaway carbs. –Jimmy Alvarado (Refuse, refusemusic.net)
