The Drives – If We’re So Modern

L.A.- based band, The Drives release single, If We’re So Modern and the vibe is millennium indie for the whole 3:40 trip.

Stabbing guitar lines and a memorable melody riff push If We’re So Modern right to the edge of where indie legends left off. Friends since high school, Andrew Levin and KC have been making music together on both coasts since they met. This single has the kind of commercialism that leads it right to a new TV show theme or ubiquitous advertisement that one can’t stop humming.
The juxtapose of the driving rhythm guitar in the verse and the staccato guitar “punches” of the chorus, keep this single fresh and alive for the whole ride. Vocal is honest and delivered perfectly in the mix, no “Vegas” mix here. Guitar solo serves the song and not the player, bonus points. If We’re So Modern is a single worth sinking your teeth into.

Chris Ambrosino hails from the Catskill region of New York and has been a performer and songwriter since 1987. He also has worked as an art director and graphic artist for several organizations. Chris currently plays and writes for indie band, Blue Ribbon and is a contributing writer for the Alt. Daily blog and For The Love Of Bands website. He has resided in Hampton Roads, VA since 1994.
