Brooklyn-based post-punk outfit Fair Visions have announced their forthcoming EP, Modern Kids, which is out this September.
“Looking back now, it’s a tune that opened up some doors in my songwriting process,” Fair Visions explains. “It’s an earlier song, I wrote it during a year that I was home in Tennessee between college and moving to NYC. It certainly developed since that, but the whole ‘I want to change every single thing but I can’t because I’m me’ line came from that original version, and is the heart of it for sure.”
The synth-laden anthem channels a new wave sound. With a driven beat and retro-futuristic instrumentals, this track will transport you back in time. Fair Visions’ Ryan Work delivers some pretty killer vocals on the tune, with throaty, gritty melodies.
Listen to “Modern Kids” below.
Ryan Work is the artist behind Fair Visions, crafting synth-laden new wave anthems. Fair Visions is inspired by the sounds of David Bowie.
The forthcoming six-track EP serves as the second half of the statement Work started with his debut, A Way Out. The first half was released during the gloom of 2020, as COVID-19 hit the hardest. Modern Kids channels a new sound, embracing darkness, catchy hooks, and new textures.
