After nearly a year in various studios across both North and South America, Boogarins pop out a fuzzy and colorful lyric video for a new track, this time sung in English by friend and touring companion John Schmersal of Braniac, Enon and Caribou fame.
‘A Pattern Repeated On’ follows up on the same pessimism and darkness found in their surprise hit single from the fall (‘Elogio a Instituição do Cinismo’) — incorporating modern hip-hop grooves via drummer Ynaiã Benthroldo and his first studio release with the band, and an increasing tendency toward concise psychedelic pop.
These two new developments (English and psych pop/beat maker grooves) might give a glimpse of what is to come. An extensive North American tour in June and July is certain to give you an opportunity to witness firsthand what these Brazilian natives are conjuring up.
Modern Nomad is the recording project of Maryland native Tom McLean who has been releasing music since 2014. His songs draw influence from The Beatles, Dr. Dog, The Beach Boys and Tame Impala to name a few.
So far, publications have unanimously praised Modern Nomad’s efforts. Brooklyn-based Pond Magazine says he “Flirts with Brilliance,” while D.C.’s 9:30 Club notes, “Modern Nomad is certainly worth checking out.”
McLean is constantly writing and recording new music. While doing the majority of the recording solo, McLean has formed a band which has been performing since 2015. ~ Carl Pietrusinski, POND
