Premiere: Modern Feelings – “The One”


“The One” is the fantastic debut single from Portland (OR) duo Modern Feelings. The track touts a bouncy, synth-forward pull that combines with jangly guitars and serene vocals — resulting in a sound that’s parts deeply nostalgic while also sounding fresh. Think TOPS with a bit of an electro-pop addition. Preceded by some more energetic guitar twangs, the synth-forward solo at 02:55 also captivates. This is a fully engaging track that we’re happy to premiere.

Modern Feelings describe the track as “about self-care and the realization that it is your own responsibility to make yourself happy in life. While friends, lovers, and experiences come and go you are the only constant. You need a life that that’s truly yours. A life that you design.”

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Catchy Indie Pop.
