"Modern Language - A House Session"

"It always seemed we were on the brink of recording the final track when someone’d chime in and disapprove. These guys wanted perfection and wouldn’t settle for much less."

"His passion for music is steadily evident, and the footage we captured of Matt singing his heart out - his own, dear lyrics - is not something you’re gonna want to miss."

"Nearing the end of the day, you’d think a group of musicians was burnt out on their music - maybe just ready to get things over with. Not Modern Language. Every new cut was filled with similar and even growing intensity. To feel your music is such a special thing, and I feel it’s one of my greatest privileges to capture an artist making art." - Michael Tucker


Still working on that hot first release.



In the bright, humid summer of 2013, the back room of a small house became a safe-haven from the heat of the American South. Out of this window-lit incubator emerged the orchestral band of brothers, Modern Language.  With influences stemming from all six band members, the group uses their own experiences to connect with each other.  From metal groups to jazz bands, the group is oriented at drawing similarities between genres to create a sound that is new, inimitable, yet seemingly nostalgic. Their heavy-hearted lyrics and catchy hooks seem to find a special niche in both South Louisiana and the indie-rock genre. With their dense guitar riffs, fluid soul-grabbing trumpet solos and places of textured, ethereal chords, the group will take your heart and use it as another instrument.

On-stage moments of unelicited head banging mirrored with spaces of clarity and intrigue have allowed Modern Language to continuously develop a sound and experience that is fresh to both ears and hearts.  Forming these connections with the audience is an important aspect of the music this group writes; out of this, a voice in south Louisiana has started to rise. Due to their engaging and exhilarating live performances, Modern Language plans to bring a lost scene back to the South.
