Following a wave of highly praised singles over recent months – ‘Don’t Wanna’, ‘Us’, ‘Follow You’, ‘Islands’ and ‘Familiar’ – which have been supported by the likes of Wonderland, Hot Press, Official Charts, Under The Radar and Ones To Watch, Irish indie-pop rockers modernlove. have now delivered their eagerly awaited OH MY MIND EP through Akira Records – home to Phoria, Henry Green, Mt Wolf, Rosey Carney and Shura – showcased by the soaring title track.


As the opener to OH MY MIND, the shimmering title track perfectly reflects the rich and dynamic direction the band have been exploring throughout this new EP. Aiming to highlight mental health struggles in a post-pandemic world, their newest gem is a warm and inviting pop rock delight that builds upon their aesthetic to date and is accompanied by a lighthearted video.


Talking about the new single, the band say, “Oh My Mind explores the modern-day neuroses of young people and the mental health challenges brought upon them by pop culture, the internet and, most recently, the coronavirus lockdowns. I think we all went a little mad over lockdown and most of this EP was written in that state of social isolation. Without distraction or release from cycles of negative thought, you can begin to spiral to the point of derealisation and being in a constant state of panic. But then we juxtaposed that with a brighter and more playful composition. As young people, we tend to joke about our mental health as a way of relating to one another and to not feel so alone in all of it. So it felt natural to write a poppy, upbeat song about such dark themes rather them treating them with a forced solemnity and formality.”

The OH MY MIND EP follows their debut monochrome blue EP, released last September, which saw modernlove. combine their early work into a statement debut offering. Featuring the singles Liquorice, 2 Missed Calls and lmk (if you wanna see me), they received strong playlist support, landing on New Music Friday UK, Fresh Finds, Alt-Pop, and The Pop List on Spotify and New In Alternative, New Music Daily and Breaking Alternative on Apple Music.


The band also received strong radio support from BBC R1, BBC 6 Music, BBC Ulster, XS Manchester, Across The Line and Radio X; were named as the Official Charts Ones To Watch; and featured in the Irish Times 15 Fine Music Acts To Listen To In 2022. Live sessions with BBC Introducing and Seconds Away have also helped to cement their position as one of the most exciting up and coming acts in the country.


As the name suggests, modernlove. explore the complexities of the modern lives of twenty-somethings. Even though their lives remain complicated, Barry, Cian, Danny, and Graham, all from Drogheda, have already nailed their sound, delivering polished indie pop with a glossy 90s sheen and intricate details.
