Modern Nomad is the recording project of multi-instrumentalist and songwriter, Tom McLean. McLean started writing and recording his own music after becoming inspired by the jangly psychedelic pop sounds of The Beatles and deep atmospheric grooves of the likes of Tame Impala and Toro y Moi.
Check out the rollicking new single, “Electrify” from Modern Nomad that propels with an atmospheric mix of guitars drums, and psych-rock flourishes. Infused with strange and inventive drum sequencing, McLean’s voice calls for liftoff as the band circles its musical journey towards 70’s arena rock nods.
I sometimes struggle with getting hung-up on the “what if’s”. I wanted to write a song about focusing on the things in my life that are right in front of me,” says Modern Nomad.
