2024 release, the legendary British new wave/post-punk band's first album of new material in eight years. Produced by Mario J. McNulty (David Bowie, Lou Reed, Nine Inch Nails), mixed by Cenzo Townsend and mastered at Abbey Road, 1 2 3 4 retains the intrinsic spirit of these early post-punk days, and is also a sterling sonic example of what Modern English have always done best. The album encompasses seething songs with a punk bite ("Long in The Tooth," "Plastic"), keyboard-forward melodic rockers ("Not Fake," "Crazy Lovers") and simmering, darkwave-meets-post-punk gems ("Exploding," "Out to Lunch"). With a touch of subtle themes lifted from After the Snow (1982) and Ricochet Days (1984) that include the environment, aging, failed relationships, love and more, 1 2 3 4 finds the legendary band delving into nostalgia but, as always, exploring new creative territory.
