Modern Rivals share two weird, wintry live session videos from On The Mountain series

Click image to watch video

Brooklyn quartet Modern Rivals are featured in the second season of The Wild Honey Pie's original video series On The Mountain just released yesterday. The 80's themed series features studio-quality recording sessions with Modern Rivals, The Orwells, Ra Ra Riot and more captured on location at Stratton Resort in Vermont. Watch/share Modern Rivals' chairlift "Pins and Stitches" HERE and poolside "Defenestrate You" HERE

On The Mountain is the latest original series from The Wild Honey Pie. The full season is available at:

Modern Rivals premiered via Pitchfork the album version of "Pins and Stitches" off of 2014 full length Cemetery Dares. Listen/share HERE. SPIN launched the band's eerie, occult-leaning video for "The Dead Leaves (Danse Macabre Midnight)" previously and is available to watch/share HERE.

Modern Rivals' ethereal and dextrous songs share the buttoned-up charm of 60s psych-pop bands like The Zombies, mixed with more technically crafty contemporary artists like Deerhunter and Beach House. Then, all of the elements are given the Nigel Godrich dreamscape approach in which no single sound is exactly what it seems. There is a delicate warmth to Modern Rivals' songs emanating from every meticulously placed note. 

Cemetery Dares is available on LP, CD and download as of April 22nd, 2014. Modern Rivals are currently in the studio working on new material for release in 2015.
