Midi & the Modern Dance
Myspace // "Clear Black Snow" [Audio]
Like fellow Connecticut indie rockers The Seascape, Midi & the Modern Dance are just barely out of high school, but that doesn't mean that their music is lacking in experience. Much to the contrary, this many-pieced band fires on all cylinders with an intensity of a band with something to prove. Their eponymous debut EP (available for free download on their Myspace page) showed them setting the table, but their recently released full-length, Twilight, How Sweet You Are, shows that they can exist with their much-hyped teenage counterparts on the other side of the Atlantic. Bombay Bicylce Club and Pull in Emergency may be easy touchstones, but it's apparent that the band is onto their own very special thing.
