Modeness is a Russian alt-pop duo based out of Moscow. It’s made up of singer/songwriter Artemiy Nik and producer/instrumentalist Rav McCoy — they sometimes work with solo guitarist Ivan Shafrun. The band makes music with a heavy electronic influence, as their latest single “F.Y.L” will properly demonstrate.
“F.Y.L” is an entrancing dark-pop piece with chilling melodies and heart-gripping lyrics. Although ushering in cheerless and depressing vibes, the song oddly talks about love. It is sung in English, with ‘F.Y.L’ being the abbreviated form of ‘feel your love’.
The band’s moniker ‘Modeness’ is derived from the words ‘Modern Madness’. Find them on Instagram even as you sample their earlier album M.O.T.P below.
