Modern Woman: Ford

London based band Modern Woman have been on the rise, earning a lot of press acclaim since the release of their debut EP, Dogs Fighting In My Dream. The group has received praise for their forceful live performances and their overall musical hybridity, which is evident in their new song and music video Ford.

Ford has been one of the oldest songs in our repertoire,” says singer and guitarist Sophie Harris, “I wrote the bassline loop for it a long time ago, one day when I only had a bass to hand. I structured the song and added guitar and simple vocal. I wanted to give it a raw and slightly sinister feel to it. We can spend an incredibly long time working a song in our practice space before we ever play it live, so we wanted to make sure that energy resonated through the recording.

Ford comes with a distinct post punk foundation, yet its strong lyricism and all around experimental properties are highly noticeable.

Harris continues: “Lyrically, it is about a girl who borrows her brother's Ford and drives it around. For Juan’s vocals towards the end of the song, I went with a William Burroughs-esque cut up technique and collected different car-related writings, chopped them up and reformed them.

Modern Woman are frontperson and guitarist Sophie Harris, bassist Juan Brint-Gutierrez, David Denyer on percussion, violin and samples, and drummer Adam Blackhurst.
