Southern California Rock trio Modern Maps dropped their Rise Records debut June 1st with a punchy and highly addictive release Hope You’re Happy.
‘Autopilot’ kicks off the album with a immediately energetic and enslaving number that announces their intent from the off. First class song writing and all consuming melodies are the name of the game as these guys make their mark track after track.
‘Heatwave’ continues the theme, airplay ready with screaming teenage girls at the ready, Modern Maps have all the qualities to draw in audiences far and wide with their gritty hooks and gargantuan sing-along choruses. Song after song your enveloped in beautifully written tracks that just pull you in again and again, it’s a pretty easy album on the ear and one which should win over an army of fans moving forward. The track should transfer to the live environment perfectly to allow for a grittier and gnarly version of the album whilst maintaining a polished beautifully produced sound.
As a signal of intent under Rise Records, Modern Maps have hit the spot and should go from strength to strength.
Hope You’re Happy is out now via Rise Records.
