New album from kosmische folk-rock quartet Modern Studies. A glorious compendium of haunted disco hallelujahs, mercurial krautrock chorales, cosmic pop adagios and euphoric, resilient, anthems. ‘The Weight of the Sun’ sees principal songwriters Emily Scott and Rob St John further their warm, esoteric field studies with Pete Harvey and Joe Smillie, as previously reconnoitred on ‘Swell To Great’ (2016) and ‘Welcome Strangers’ (2018).


“The exact point where Fairport Convention meet Jim O’Rourke at a remote Scottish railway station.” Tim Burgess


“Melancholic magic… recalls Johnny Marr’s hazier reveries and the febrile, electrified folk of Polly Harvey’s Let England Shake.” UNCUT

“Setting the standards for intelligent pop” Record Collector


There is a strange familiarity, and a welcome strangeness, in the quiet alchemy of Modern Studies.
