The Modern Strangers
The Modern Strangers are a 5 piece Indie-Disco band from Tumbridge Wells, Kent. The band is fronted by brothers Max & Archie Davenport along with Patrick on bass, Jimmy on keys & Will on drums. They first sprang to life in the summer of 2016 off the back of debut single Vanilla which earned them early support from BBC Introducing in Kent and BBC Radio 1. They’ve since spent their 2017 releasing seminal singles Hot Rain, Margarita and Coco Hello in the midst of a busy summer full of festival slots.
The Modern Strangers take pop music, discard anything falling below the standard levels of sass, and smash fun into whatever is left. In fact, they’re scientifically proven to be excellent purveyors of pop music – following a BBC documentary broadcast last year, a computer algorithm designed to pre-determine what music is most popular allocated them first (and fourth) position out of 17,500 tracks.
After a knock out performance at our Solas stage at Latitude, we cannot wait for the Body&Soul audience to experience their set live at Electric Picnic.
