Ford by Modern Woman

Darkenin Heart

Modern Woman, the London-based experimental indie rock/post punk band, are led by frontwoman and guitarist Sophie Harris and completed by Juan Brint-Gutierrez on bass, David Denyer on percussion, violin, and samples, and Adam Blackhurst on drums. Following the release of their new material, the band will hit the road for festival appearances at Latitude and End Of The Road, as well as a winter tour with Sub Pop's TV Priest.

The band's new single is Ford, a flexible, folk-leaning post punk track out though End Of The Road Records, the label arm of the British music festival. The track is paired with a filmic video directed by the band’s previous collaborator Sandra Ebert filmed in the Cambridgeshire countryside. The song was produced and mixed by Oli Barton-Wood (Porridge Radio, Nilufer Yanya, Obongjayer), and mastered by Jason Mitchell (PJ Harvey, Dry Cleaning, Aldous Harding).

“‘Ford’ has been one of the oldest songs in our repertoire.”, says singer and guitarist Sophie Harris, “I wrote the bassline loop for it a long time ago, one day when I only had a bass to hand. I structured the song and added guitar and simple vocal. I wanted to give it a raw and slightly sinister feel to it. We can spend an incredibly long time working a song in our practice space before we ever play it live, so we wanted to make sure that energy resonated through the recording.

“Lyrically, it is about a girl who borrows her brother's Ford and drives it around. For Juan’s vocals towards the end of the song, I went with a William Burroughs-esque cut up technique and collected different car-related writings, chopped them up and reformed them.”
