NEPA indie-pop bad Modern Ties is sharing one single per month in the lead-up to its December album release. The latest, “Colorado,” makes its debut today below.
“It’s about meeting the next goal in whatever journey you may be on, whether that’s one more step on a hike, or getting out of bed on a crappy day, or meeting someone new after a heartbreak. Climb a little higher, and move on,” says Stephen Murphy ( lead vocals/keys).
The band initially formed as Black Tie Stereo but changed its name in advance of the new album release. The current lineup is Murphy, vocals/keys), Jesse Morvan (guitar), Aaron Kovalich (bass) and George Pachucy (drums)
“Black Tie Stereo has been around since 2013. We started as a Scranton cover band, and then we started writing our own music,” Pachucy explains. “When this lineup came together, all we wanted to do was write and record. We released a ton of music as Black Tie Stereo, and grew a nice following around Scranton. As we grew as artists, we wanted to separate our own music from what we were doing as a cover band. So we decided to rebrand before this album to separate the two.”
Lastly, asked if the band has any shows or livestreams in the works, he says nothing yet, “but stay glued to our socials for more!”
