my insides – [Restless Modern]

“The “scary sky” EP is a project that explores the different faces of who I am in the context of my relationship.  This is something that has both evolved over time and that mutates based on the circumstances. The artwork for this EP follows the template of the singles’ artworks (“in summation,” “scary sky,” and “shrunk in my head”) but moves a step further. I took the physical film versions of the composited image (made up of 25 separate photos) and placed them face-down on top of a large piece of clear plexiglass.  I then laid down on the grass underneath the plexiglass and took a picture of the photos with the night sky in the background” – Restless Modern Restless Modern returns to Lyrical Lemonade with an epic song off his brand new scary sky EP titled “my insides.” Self-producing the record like always, the booming bass creates a spine-chilling match for Modern’s soft, yet high-pitched vocals. The hook in particular is quite impressive, as RM effortlessly fluctuates intensity to showcase the raw emotions felt at a particular time. Fascinatingly the lyrics are full of romance, but the tragic words sung make the track a unique nightmare amid an intended …

In Summation – [Restless Modern]

“I wanted to create something that evolves from being dark and atmospheric into having a huge high-energy alternative moment at the end of the record. This is the closing track on the EP, so the structure serves both the individual song and the larger body of work thematically. As the name implies, “in summation” acts as a holistic overview that brings together everything discussed in the project and adds an important perspective to it.  Nick Anthony played guitar for me in the final section and helped out with some of the production as well” – Restless Modern Personal favorite Restless Modern returns to Lyrical Lemonade with arguably his best song yet titled “In Summation.” The track is the first single off his highly-anticipated Scary Sky EP, which serves as a short, yet excellent preview of what to expect. With a somber, yet peaceful piano opener, Modern’s high-pitched vocals set the tone before the eclectic production kicks in. Each and every note is sung with a quality of eloquence and emphasis, which gives the listener an immediate impression of the song’s conceptual gravity. Afraid of what’s ahead of him, such uncertainty mirrors the unpredictability of the composition; notably an epic electric-guitar sendoff to close …

Humbled – [Restless Modern] x [Nick Anthony]

“Humbled” is a song about not taking credit for things that were never really in my control.  It’s about giving up a feeling of power in order to move in a better direction” – Restless Modern Shortly after releasing “Mercy,” Restless Modern is back with another excellent single titled “Humbled.” Maintaining his streak of releasing a new track every other Wednesday, Modern’s latest offering was jointly produced by himself and Nick Anthony. Openly admitting past faults of incessant drinking and “maybe” cheating, Modern finds solace in projecting his flaws and egoistic tendencies: “I don’t want the world like how I used to / And I feel convicted but I’ve never been so happy to know I’m wrong.” Despite the world’s newly acquired knowledge of his own faults, a massive weight of guilt and anxiety has been lifted off his chest, as Modern details previously relying on fading medication to repress internal confrontation. Written, performed, & engineered by Modern himself, sonically the record employs silky-smooth mellow production that bolds well with his refreshingly honest vocals.

Mercy – [Restless Modern]

“Mercy” is a song about retaliation and its relative moral position.  It’s about thinking differently in a world where being wronged becomes justification for wronging others – violence begetting violence in a very broad sense” – Restless Modern As a writer, I’ll never stop accepting submissions because there are countless incredibly talented artists that I’d never discover if not for them. The latest example is Restless Modern, who is a 24 year-old artist, songwriter & producer. Modern is not only an independent artist, but also a self-engineer & DIY creator of his own records and visuals. In 2020, he’s impressively committed to releasing one song every other Wednesday, with full intention to replicate such consistency in 2021. Modern’s persistence and versatility has allowed himself to net a loyal fanbase that relates to him on a personal level. With 21+ million streams across popular platforms, the numbers still don’t reflect the quality of his artistry. Restless Modern’s latest offering is a new single titled “Mercy,” which was written, performed and engineered all by himself. The beat alone is as epic as Modern’s vocals, which creates a spine-chilling track that’s suitable for a box office hit movie. The synthetic instrumentation and daunting …
