Modern Welfare Release Third Studio Single, “Forgive Us”
Modern Welfare shakes things up with their latest release, their third studio single, “Forgive Us,” on February 23rd. The track was recorded by Kyle Odell of East Iris Studios in Nashville, Tennessee. Located in Florida, the four piece band is self-built, and self-funded. All coming from different parts of the country, each member shows their own stories and individuality in their works.
Embracing their Post- Hardcore and Alternative roots, Modern Welfare blend hard rock and electronic-pop to showcase a sound entirely of their own. Lyrically, they present a voice for the soft-spoken but iron-hearted. Within the lyrics of their music reveals stories through conflict inspiring a sense of ease and reprieve amongst the darkness of addiction, struggles in finding mental health, bullying, and the pursuit of a new American dream.
Their latest single, “Forgive Us,” is introduced with a quick tempo that continues to build in intensity as each element and instrument is blended in with an effortless sense of ease. One minute in the track showcases a powerfully executed series of higher octave notes that induce a series of chills through the spine, along with the lyrics, “Forgive us for we know not what we do.” The context of which these lyrics lie are in a spiritual nature, which adds to the weight of the words as they’re sung. Offering a voice for those who have been wrongfully condemned, perhaps, this song’s quick pacing adds to the cathartic nature that this genre brings. Out from the ashes of the fallen and the condemned, signs of new and hope arise to make things new.
