The indie surf-rock artist, Modern Love Child (MLC), has left the West Coast for a new home in Miami. After the success of his debut album, MLC, he juggled time between LA, London, Austin, and Costa Rica. Now, with his feet firmly planted in the tropical Floridian sands, he's ready to take on the world with his unique indie vibes.
The first song born out of his new surroundings was the 60’s garage banger, “Diet Cokes,” which dropped in March. Now, MLC releases “Tia,” an intimate love song that highlights his signature emo-authenticity.
“Tia” was inspired by the actress who played the surfer girl in MLC's video for “Golden Brown.” “I didn't really get to know her on set of the video shoot, but she was exceptionally beautiful, so I tried to write a super romantic song to reflect that,” admits MLC.
Both of the 2023 singles are a taste of what lies ahead on Modern Love Child's forthcoming sophomore album, set to be released in 2024 via the Noise Company (aka NoiseCo), the independent label / music co-op founded by artist Ben Kweller, a longtime collaborator of MLC.
