Watch “I’m An Alien”
“I’m An Alien” is a song for anyone who has ever felt disconnected from society. The video features a fun and comedic mixture of animation and puppeteering as an alien is seen landing on earth, trying to find his place amongst others in this crazy world. Featuring bouncy synths, sing-a-long melodies and cosmic guitar riffs,Modern Original have created a tantalizing and vibrant record all about embracing our own inner weirdo.
The band has received acclaim from the likes of Live Nation Ones to Watch, American Songwriter, Atwood Magazine and Earmilk to name a few. Their recently released debut EP has close to 500k streams.
Modern Original is an alternative rock duo formed by singer/guitarist Josh Hogan and drummer Andy Warren. Members of the alt-pop band The Mowgli’s, the two began writing songs during the 2020 lockdown, capturing their feelings, hopes, and the confusing ups and downs of that infamous year. Inspired by artists such as Tame Impala, Bleachers and Glass Animals but without any idea of genre or plan other than to make music they loved, they dove into everything from surf rock to sunny pop. Modern Original is reflective, positive, unfettered and honest – a response to a bleak time and a hope for a brighter future.
