Introducing the self-released debut EP of East London two-piece Modern Technology.

Modern Technology formed through a shared frustration of a post-truth society and political unrest that is currently suffocating our global conscious. Chris Clarke (bass & vocals) and Owen Gildersleeve (drums) confront these issues head-on, tackling themes of political injustice, social anxiety, austerity and inequality.

All profits from the release will be shared between housing and homelessness charity Shelter and mental-health charity Mind.

Limited edition vinyl version available here:

“Modern Technology are the real deal: music that’s born out of compulsion, the urge to purge. It’s art. It’s raw, it’s visceral, it’s painful. And in expressing the agony of frustration, it’s perfect.”
- Aural Aggravation (

“there’s an inescapably visceral pull to the music the like of which is all too rarely found... it’s like the first time I heard Nirvana, Sonic Youth or Fugazi – that same sense of danger mingled with excitement. This is a band that matters and whose music means something. 10/10”
- SonicAbuse (

“the breadth of the band’s music adds an important somewhat inescapable depth to their work. 5/5” - Captured Howls (

“Modern Technology have spawned an artful, remarkable and significant EP... an overwhelming piece of dismay. 9/10” - GBHBL (

“Six tracks of utter angst and dejection... the perfect soundtrack for the looming apocalypse.” - Disagreement (
