Premiere: Deli’s Artist of the Month Modern Painters share new video for “Whaler”





Premiere: Deli’s Artist of the Month Modern Painters share new video for “Whaler”

The results are in: Jamaica Plain indie rockers Modern Painters have won the Deli Magazine Artist of the Month poll for January 2018! The Painters gained the the Deli’s attention after releasing their lush eponymous debut album in December 2017, warranting a write up and a subsequent nomination for Artist of the Month. From our December write up: “In the case of Jamaica Plains’ folk-indie group Modern Painters, the confidence, sincerity, and precision in their self-titled debut is not unlike a veteran band with several good albums under their belt.”

To celebrate their victory, Modern Painters and Deli Magazine have decided to exclusively premiere their newest music video for “Whaler”, a breezy, jazz guitar laden track from their debut album. “Whaler” falls into the unique category of loungey, New England-intellectual indie music, recalling songs like Jonathan Richman’s “That Summer Feeling”, and Galaxie 500’s “Blue Thunder”.

The summer-y “Whaler” video couldn’t come at a better time, as New Englanders spend the mid-winter lull dreaming of lake-days under the hot summer sun. The video features singers Gabe Goodman and Nike Brannstrom half-dancing and crooning on Goodman’s 13’ 1969 Boston Whaler in his hometown of Scituate in the South Shore. Clad in a black dress and a casual black and white suit, Brannstrom and Goodman emote the delicious warm haze of lazy summer days, capturing the freedom and youthful vigor of harbor towns and mid day boat rides.

Be sure to catch Modern Painters at the Midway Cafe on March 20th. Enjoy the video for “Whaler” below. -Charley Ruddell
