NEW ALBUM, OCCULT DELIGHT, OUT NOW ON LIGHT ORGAN RECORDS
“Sweetly melancholy single “Strangle The Shadows” crests to a simple guitar-driven throughline that’s familiar enough without being redundant. Intile sounds more hopeful, too: ‘Let’s hope he turns inside / And strangles the shadows in his mind.” – PITCHFORK
“Mode Moderne draw a cultural bridge between modern-day Canada and the greyed tones of 1980s Manchester… a gently addictive and well-balanced offering.” – NME (7/10)
Watch ‘Unburden Yourself’
Vancouver new wave outfit, Mode Moderne, mark the release of their new album, Occult Delight, with the premiere of their gothically gorgeous new video for “Unburden Yourself” via Noisey. Director Jordan Utley fully embraces the song’s morbid narrative and mournful vibe with a series of non-linear, snow-dusted, dreamlike shots.
Mode Moderne’s Philip Intilé was thrilled to work with Director Jordan Utley. “We’re a big fan of Jordan Utley’s work, he makes fantastic images. Long winded music-video narratives are played out, we just want strong images, total Jean Cocteau vibes, and we got lucky because it snowed in Salt Lake City AND there was a full moon! Jordan Utley: SLC goth.”
