Modern Suits, ‘Fingerprints’ – Free MP3 Download
Modern Suits represent the mature side of the Midwest's indie-pop and rock scene. Now that the middle of the country is emerging from the trenches of the neon pop-punk wave that flowed over from Chicago's heyday, many are finding that it's OK to use your tenor voice and throw a couple of extra chords in your songs. Hell, while you're at it, let's throw out those purple American Apparel hoodies, too.
Along with the wardrobe upgrade, the scene is gravitating toward substance again -- something I personally welcome with open arms. "'Fingerprints' recalls moments of clarity," Adam Jessamine tells Diffuser.fm, describing today's free MP3. "It's about how much you would do for someone knowing full well that they wouldn't do it for you. It's about realizing your own self-worth."
