Modern Fools - SEER

Echo Finch

Modern Fools have released their debut album release SEER. The band is led by wandering song-writer and New Hampshire native Josh Blair. The album spans across genres in the indie/alt-country sound space. The album has a certain “desert feel” at times, from songs written while traveling in Joshua Tree, CA (where the cover art pictures were taken). 

SEER came to life during the pandemic lockdown, giving Blair time to finish the songs and record with band mates. The album was mixed by KEXP’s audio engineer Kevin Suggs (Seattle, WA).

The human experience can be summed up as striving to find a balance between melancholy and joy. The tightrope of emotions is the backbone of the stories musicians have been yelling and singing on stages since time began. Modern Fools finds their place in those truths. Wandering song-writer and New Hampshire native Josh Blair has made his days revolve around music, playing shows since he was 14 is what makes this project special. Working in a supportive role made Josh understand how it all comes together. Compromise and connection. But in this role as leader and visionary Josh does more than shine, he feels settled. Finding his place within the balance of love and patience. Modern Fools understand that there’s no need to rush. We’re all unfolding each day as it happens and just trying to figure out how to survive. For Modern Fools surviving starts with melodies and chords, combined with seasoned players. If you’re looking for fellow travelers doing their best to get it right then Modern Fools are taking off and there’s plenty of room to come along.
