Les Techno – “The Modern Twist”


“The Modern Twist” is the latest from Les Techno, impressing most recently with “Flowers For Dystopia” over the summer. This new release shows the usual wit from the New York-based artist, lamenting on how the same old evils and challenges present us today as they have before, albeit with a modern twist. The title-referencing chorus exudes a Bowie-esque charm, in the vein of “Young Americans.” The verses tout a more sped-up, eclectic fervency, while the chorus impresses with its laid-back rock swagger. A spacey synth-forward sequence leads the ensuing bridge, before wrapping up enjoyably with another chorus. “The Modern Twist” is another consuming entry from Les Techno.

“The Modern Twist” and other memorable tracks from October can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of October 2021’ Spotify playlist.
