Agenda – Modern Lovers

When a band describes their own sound as a ‘unique blend of schitzo synthy paranoid punk’ then you know your pretty much on to a winner, if they then proceed to explain that their interests lay in ‘exploring the desperate/disparate nature of queernes, gender, sexuality and dysmorphic desire’ in some kind of young Lou Reed fashion then, for me, it not only sparks intense intrigue it actually seals the deal, and that’s without hearing so much as a solitary strike of a chord.

Modern Lovers is just one of a number of tracks on the three piece’s sophomore record Fixations, released on Desire Records this June. I love it:

Love in the form of misunderstandings

The first degree in the seconds of absence

The ocean reduced to the flat of a screen

You’re always away from me

Planes and trains are the passengers leaving

The veins and strange of the aperture’s beating

The light of my heart is when yours is dark

There’s always a latency

 

Fantasy leads me to what I can’t reach

In a pantry that’s full of counting the weeks

Detonate the frustration, longing for you

Is in short a chess game without any moves

Remember, I pretend that I’m going to war

I’ll be back coz it’s love that I’m fighting for

But there’s only a so much a hero can take

When the enemy is them and their own heartache

 

Modern lover’s dancing in the distance of each other’s hearts

Modern lovers living in the distance of each other’s hearts

Modern lovers Dying in the distance of each other’s hearts

Modern lovers dancing in the distance of each other’s hearts
