Modern Studies' second album is out this May, hear their outstanding new track below

Otherworldly pop outliers Modern Studies will release their second album Welcome Strangers on 18 May, via Fire Records.

Above you can hear their stunning new single 'Mud And Flame', a brilliant and beautiful piece that blends sublime vocals with a sweet and lavish instrumental.

The band used a Creative Scotland grant to pay for recording of the new album in a remote village hall, and hired a chamber orchestra for the sessions in rural Perthshire.

Says Scott of their creative process: "It's an ever changing thing - an organism, there is space for each of the band to experiment."

The album is available for preorder now, which you can do so here.
