Modern Skirts - Like Lunatics

Modern Skirts has a sound that is inexplicable. Their new sophomore album, All of Us in Our Night, transitions from downtempo acoustic rock to electropop and back to piano rock. Most music is predictable to a degree—past the first minute, the rest of the song can largely be foreseen. This band breaks that mold with twists and surprises of unexpected sounds and instrumentation. The result is saturated sound that flows smoothly as the album progresses.

The final song on the album, “Like Lunatics” has an epic feel with a baffling combination of acoustic guitar, lofi synths and fluid orchestrations.
