Therapy 04:13
I’m a sorry little man I blame the world, for wronging me watch my life expire Content in what I see. I’m a righteous friend Your never live up to me I take the time to bias And judge ferociously There eyes close, But do they sleep? Sleep I’m an arrogant fuck Disillusioned by self belief Never down on his luck With a thirst for everything Sleep
2.
When the walls close in on all four sides When you choke on words, you once knew And they ask you what, you’re so afraid of? And we, and we try When darkness coats your lungs inside When your back is up, your time is too And they ask you what, you’re so afraid of? And we, and we try To rid ourselves of negative feeling When the wheels come off, as you pulse collides and you’ve bitten off more than you can chew And they ask you what, you’re so afraid of? And we, and we try To rid ourselves of negative feeling To wash ourselves with positive healing And it’s fine if it makes you feel better And it’s fine if it make you feel safe And it’s fine if it’s completely revealing To wash ourselves with positive healing Knock the walls down

Gate Crasher 05:06
Panic Panic sets in Worry Worry you’ll fit in You’re not welcome Fear Fear of missing out Drowning Drowning in doubt You’re not welcome Alone Alone once again Anxious Anxious to explain You’re not welcome

Twitcher 05:38
You reap, you sew You creep, you know The hearts, you hold The trail, so bold Lust You’re done, you’re due It’s out, who knew? The hearts, you hold The game, so cold And now you see The truth is free And now you see My shame is free
5.
Cleanse your life of hate [And] we’ll all be saved It feeds the fear inside you The harder, to forgive The greater the love It frees the fear inside you End the resent right here The shadow of grudge It harms the ones around you Let the light flood in And rise above It holds the ones around you Can’t we move on? Who’s at fault Aren't we stubborn Give All is forgiven
6.
They’re owed everything in free country If you tell them they’re wrong you’re as good as dead They're sold everything in free country Expect nothing less they expect you to pay For what it’s worth they’re worth less than ever They need more money They’re spoiled for choice or just spoiled To be special in free country When you’re in love with yourself there’s no love left They’re the privileged many in free country Expect nothing less they expect you to pay For what it’s worth they’re worth less than ever They need more money They’ll take what they want and take you for granted They're owed everything in free country Expect nothing less they expect you to pay They're sold everything in free country Expect nothing less they expect you to pay They need more money

Our time on earth Is fading fast The stench of decay In contempt of past We’ve exploited too long Our die is cast

Life Like 07:46
Our faces are swallowed in light In screens of fantasy Watch as we walk Hunched in time We cradle a world, of anxiety. that feeds anxiety A pause to reflect, After cause and effect Cut off our nose, spite face Engage the world, human race Tear back the curtain, And stare into the sun Watch the wings burn we’re overcome We make believe, To believe in ourselves. Time, after time, After like, after like. Cut off our nose, spite face Engage the world, human race Stupid man, Smart phone Stupid man, All alone. We rely on it To hide us from ourselves. To shut out the world To save face Distract us And motivate the fame A time to reject, After time of neglect. Stupid man, Smart phone, Stupid man, All alone. (Life Like)

about

Introducing the first full-length by UK duo Modern Technology and the first physical release from new charitable label Human Worth, with 20% of all proceeds split between the amazing charities The Trussell Trust to help support their nationwide network of food banks, and Black Minds Matter to help provide mental health support to black individuals and families.

"Service Provider’ is a justifiably enraged response to a mad world. It’s a caustic record, and it’s also full of absolute bangers." – Birthday Cake for Breakfast

"It collects the sentiments that fester in the back of your mind when you can see injustice baldly operating in front of you, and spits them back with ferocity and gravitas... Noise for the Now." – Astral Noize

"The heavy and intense brand of noise-rock that's spat out by London's Modern Technology is so dense and ferocious, it's hard to believe the band consists of only two members." – The Quietus

"Somehow, Modern Technology have upped their game since the release of their debut EP." 9/10 – GBHBL

"On the one hand you are being bludgeoned, on the other you are grooving your ass out.... a mighty fine collection of abrasive noise-rock and post industrial sludge metal." – The Sleeping Shaman

"Killer two-piece noise-rock nastiness. Just drums, bass and vocals, taking it down to its riffy essence.” – Independent Music Podcast

“Really creative, off the wall, but still noisy and still with an edge to it. This is another band that sound vital and essential” – Ninehertz Podcast

"An intensely physical experience, which captures the force of the band’s live performances perfectly...they sustain the bludgeoning impact throughout, making for an absolute monster of an album. It’s hard to fault service like this." – Aural Aggravation
