His droning voice hums over twinkling synths and lo-fi guitars in a simple ode to love that lasts just under two minutes. Short, sweet, and filled with the kind of vibe that'll make you want to fall in love, Eyedress -- who just moved back to California from spending time in Manila -- is bound to make Los Angeles fall in love with them.

PREMIERE: Modern Diet release latest single “Post Grad”

The lyricially insightful, thinking-persons rock of Brooklyn's Modern Diet returns with their latest single “Post Grad” premiering here on the Deli in time for Valentine's Day. However, the sentiment expressed here focuses on an existential crisis of being, rather than traditional romantic notions. Chiming open note guitar chords, soulful keyboards, bright tambourine percussion and a progression defining bassline immediately establish wistful sentimentality for the lyrics that follow. “Sticking to the script I used to know. Making plans and standing up to go. All my old tricks slip into places as we carry on. It's a three piece suit made of stone and it weighs a ton. Take it off for me won't you?” These vocals are delivered with clarity touched by just the right amount of contemporary studio enhancements. Open spaces are provided in the mix for click-clack percussion and celestial rising ambiance. While the title implies what is learned after basic formal schooling, the emphasis focuses on it's struggle. “Meanwhile I keep getting older. Go uphill, pushing my boulder – to fall down, back to the bottom and up once more,” is how the defining chorus goes. The track is available now and can be had (along with their other work) via the band's linktree here. - Dave Cromwell
