Having managed to gain a foothold on the music scene individually before starting their indie electronic duo Modern Tales
, Jonas Rathsman
and his younger brother singer/songwriter Franz Novotny
are now focusing their energies on their shared project. Leaving their preconceived notions behind and just focusing on making some music, they’ve just released their second single Wide Awake
on RÜFÜS DU SOL's Rose Avenue Records, which comes off the heels of Monster
, the duo's debut track. We speak to the Swedish brothers about their exciting latest single built on hypnotizing synth chords, ask them about their strengths and short- and long-term plans, and discuss their debut album Stars Align
expected to be released in June 2023.
