Put on those shades and wave to yesterday, because you’re day has just been made with a new Modestep track that’ll have you up all night until the sunlight hurts your eyes.
After dropping their debut album “Evolution Theory”, the UK bass group have been relatively quiet over the past year or so…. until now! Coming out of nowwhere Modestep drops the first single off their upcoming EP, “Snake,” which seems to be a song calling out those who doubted and talked down the group behind their backs (Or just on Twitter directly).
This track is reminiscent of rock/bass music hybrids like classic tunes from Chase and Status, Infected Mushroom or Pendulum back when they where leading the charge of electronic music merging with live instrumentation. With a wicked drum and bass pace, bolstered by heavy guitar riffs and a pounding bass line, this track will incite mosh pits and thrashing that should warrant a warning label outside of the venue reading “Enter At Your Own Risk”.
It would seem this time around Modestep isn’t leaning on alot of gnarly bass drops or simple catchy hooks to get their point across and if this track is any indication of what’s to come, they don’t need them. “Snake” is an absolute banger that’s more “M” then “EDM”. So for a healthy, balanced music pallet, this needs to be worked into your rotation as soon as you can download it.
