(Exclusive Premiere + Mental Health Conversation): “Lines” by EL MODERNIST

Editor's Note:  Today, El Modernist will be releasing their single "Lines", and they're premiering it with us on Madness To Creation! Here is what the band said about "Lines:" “A modern take on New Wave, "Lines" by El Modernist encapsulates raw, angular rock riffs with upbeat percussive grooves. The simple yet universal lyrics about the fabricated life around us are captured within delightfully frenetic verses, and a laid back yet hard hitting hook. "Lines" lends itself to having an instantaneously classic sound, updated for today's listeners.” We are excited to hear about their evolution and for you all to learn about this amazing band.  They went from the "rap-rock partying days" of their music to the groovy sounds of Talking Heads meets The Clash with a bit of a Blondie twist.  I...
