Following on from the recent release of the soaring‘Error of the World’ – Modern Error have today released a new single – ‘A Vital Sign’. A song that is “searching for an answer in love, and questioning all that love is; Feeling as if the world has changed you to now misunderstand its intention and meaning,” explains Zak Pinchin.
“With a world shifting, so are people’s needs and I think that raises a question of Modern love in a modern world: Do we love or do we just love to be loved? A vital sign was made to search what I felt on this subject and expose my thoughts on it..”
Following an exclusive premiere for the track on last night’s BBC Radio 1 Rock Show with Daniel P Carter, the accompanying video also once again features ‘flowerface’ – “a person hidden behind a mask of surface level beauty in order to cope within a real life setting.”
“We follow flowerface and see him begin a trajectory of broken heart syndrome as he loses his own idea of love in his heightened modern world.”
MODERN ERROR – ‘A Vital Sign’ (Official Music Video)
Unashamedly drawing inspiration from the cinematic work of Kubrick and Aaronofsky, the philosophical cut and thrust of Nietzsche and beyond. An all-too-rare commitment to the idea that art can stand for something bigger than itself. Combine that with a superlative blend of stadium-bothering rock and post-punk abrasiveness and it is clear that Modern Error are, in almost every conceivable way, a band tailor made for our times.
The Brothers Pinchin, Zak (Vocals) and Kel (Guitar), very much big picture thinkers themselves, have a desire for Modern Error to “make a statement about how we view the state of the world.“
