The Modern Airline Celebrates Self-Titled Debut Saturday, June 9 at The Trash Bar
New Wave quintet, The Modern Airline will bring their tight, loud and delightfully spastic live show to The Trash Bar on Sat. Jun. 9 to celebrate the release of their self-titled debut. The band, who dress as airline pilots and stewardesses, is inspired by 80s new wave and 70s punk and hard rock as well as sci-fi, surrealism and sex.
The album is as high energy as their shows, and you'll be checking to see if you've found an unreleased collaboration between Devo, The Moldy Peaches and Kraftwerk. Starting out with "Periods of Missing Time," featuring bendy guitars, sci-fi effects and a deranged robotic delivery, the album flies through frenetic track after frenetic track, each one clearly designed to make you move. Ending on the spacey, chugging "Accelerated Evolution," which was inspired by an episode of The Outer Limits, this album has a serious sci-fi pedigree and puts The Modern Airline in the realm of early B-52s or pre-kiddie rock They Might Be Giants.
