The Modes Q&A

Your names:
Dan & Jon.

Where are you from?
Brighton, UK.

Name of band:
The Modes.

How would you describe yourselves?
We are an alt-rock power duo, formed in the summer of 2013. We met at university, Dan playing guitar and Jon playing drums on a music performance degree course. The Sound is very textual and dynamic, using dirty single note rock riffs and driving drums to create a powerful and punchy mix. 

Who are your main influences musically?
Heavily influenced by Royal Blood, Wolfmother, The Graveltones, The White Stripes & The Black Keys. 

What do you hope to achieve in music?
At the moment our main aim is to break out of the local music scene and make a name for ourselves, eventually leading to playing festival shows and playing to international audiences.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
Being featured in Unsigned & Independent magazine.

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
Being asked if we need a bassist every time someone sees us rehearsing.

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
"Not This Time" because it showcases all the elements that we are all about, dirty riffs, pounding drums, improv solos and sweet, sweet jams.

Where can we listen to it?

Where can we find out more about your music?

Anything else you’d like to say about your band/music that I forgot to ask?
