"The album opens with 'Modern Love', a tune that is every much the Hives as it is Steve Earl."- The Riz/Canadian Beats Magazine
This is the opening track and first single off The Rickaneers Lp. Recorded over two and a half months in the summer of 2016, The Rickaneers continue to hone their unique sound while entering into new realms of psychedelia, fuzz rock and garage. Their songwriting has come a long way and this is apparent when you hear 'Modern Love", a somewhat cynical song about the hardships in todays dating scene. With an opening riff reminiscent of something from a 13th Floor Elevators album, to the reverb-soaked backup vocals that haunt the song, to the dark and thunderous drums and bass, it is clear that The Rickaneers have stepped out of their comfort zone and into new and exciting territory. Their debut self-titled Lp is set to be released digitally and on vinyl on Friday, January 27, 2017 with a show at Junction City Music Hall in Toronto.
