When Title Fight dropped Hyperview and Turnover released Peripheral Vision, it was clear that some artists wanted to branch out into new sounds. These bold changes weren’t for everyone, but I personally loved these shifts and came to love the expeditions into shoegaze and dreampop. As such, MODERN COLOR exudes a similar sound, so I’m eager to see what their third offering, From the Leaves of Your Garden, can accomplish. Previously a more-aggressive band, MODERN COLOR still maintains a punky vibe, with more eased vocals in this new offering. Opting for more clean vocals and mellowed instrumentation, this is a more matured, succinct effort than the band’s sophomore LP. When bands transform, they run the risk of losing fans that loved their old sound. Thankfully, that’s not the case here. A prime example of a band coming into their own, From the Leaves of Your Garden is the band’s best work yet, and is sure to turn a lot of heads. I only wish I could see the band tour it, but at least we get to enjoy this quality record in the meantime.
