Wires behave wires hide Before the crash humanity died You don’t complain and you don’t really mind it All this waste falls from high We just sit here minding our own business We’re just shapes failed by design Well it’s not like you like it We’re just shapes failed in your eyes Criticise, all that you know Hide any sign of pain, in disguise At least I’m trying, all that you know Hide any sign of pain, in disguise Well you don’t really understand it Why we’re all failing here It's not like you like it Why we’re decaying here With us I was with you, our hearts in you We’re just shapes failed by design Well it’s not like you like it We’re just shapes failed in your eyes Well you don’t really understand it Why we’re all failing here It’s not like you like it Why we’re all decaying here Way down I go Way down we go Way down I go Oh no, oh no

Project Fear 02:12
You wanted freedom So you put up a wall To block out the light To criticise The ones next door You wanted order To assign to shapes To live our lives Hand to mouth On a welfare state You liar We can’t afford to be you You fix it You wanted fear Just to keep us indoors Drugged to our eyes Never criticise What we’re taking it for You wanted terror Just to keep us in place Too scared to travel Too scared to talk Too scared to hate You liar, you fix it

Hello it’s me again, your nosey neighbour That taste of fear in your mouth That prays for nasty weather It hunts in silence, the hairs on your neck They say it prescribes your act Anxiety I was, here And sure you say relax, and smile whatever A shell of skin and bones, that roams free Prescribe to save us, there’s no one else here But it only hides the fact Anxiety I was, here Drink it down you need it That sweet relief One more can’t hurt? Anxiety Hello, it’s me again, that warming sweater Who smiles in the face of foes Whatever the weather I was, here Select retail, reject detail Drink it down you need it That sweet relief It’s free, its fine, don’t complain Whats real? Drink it down

You swipe right for love And sign your social letter The skin that fills the screen Reliant Your mask of fame Invest your time better Your outfit of the day Reliant It’s quick, it’s cheap {We’re all asleep} What a waste of time What a wasted life There’s more to this than you The narcissist’s game What’s worse You were made for this Swollen eyes Staring to the abyss What's worse You encourage this Swollen eyes Staring to the abyss Compliant / Breathe Is this really how it’s meant to be Clothing scars Lost time forever, switching off What’s worse you applaud this Stolen minds Scratching at the itch What’s worse You all sleep through this Compliant / Breathe Lost time, forever Switching off Touching, remember Connection lost Breathe

What is this? Closing down Capital risk Nothing is left here No outside No one can live here Jealous lives, empty words Lock yourself inside here Keep warm Lives wasting away Precious time lost here Keep warm What if we die here? What have we done? Send help down here Keep warm How could it, could it help? Who does it, does it help? Closing down, one by one one Cleansing is nothing new Keep warm Excellent transport In need of modernisation Purpose-built residential Derelict No town, identity, feelings Concrete, no remorse Listen, no one can live here One more? What’s it worth? Relief, passion, glass ceilings Empty life, no remorse Send help, please down here No more, human worth

about

“Modern Technology write ugly noise-rock songs about the nasty sights we see all around us at this dismal point of late-stage capitalism... the sound is so deliciously grubby, flea ridden and riff driven.” - The Quietus bit.ly/ModernTech-TheQuietus

“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 bit.ly/ModernTech-AuralAggro

“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 bit.ly/ModernTech-SonicAbuse

“Their music conveys a sense of being thoroughly worn out with the trampling excesses of the modern world and just how pervasive the dangers in those excesses are. 5/5" - Captured Howls
bit.ly/ModernTech-CapturedHowls

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

Introducing the debut EP of London duo Modern Technology. All profits from the release will be shared between homeless charity Shelter and mental-health charity Mind.
