About THE MODERN TIMES

The Modern Times(NO)

A musician once said:
It’s such a fine line between stupid and clever.” That line is
definitely blurred in the case of The Modern Times. The songs purvey adolescent
ignorance or poignant satirem, or maybe both – it probably depends on the listener.
This hybrid of jangly and jagged post punk, snotty punk rock and garage-infused
power pop hardly sounds like anything out there these days. This is also much to the
credit of singer Magnus Volds Jensen’s unique and incisive delivery.


With their sophomore album, Algorhythmic Dance Music, The Modern Times have
signed up with Black Pop Records and upped their game to boot. The record sounds

beats them both to the bar. Or something like that.


The Modern Times released their debut This Is The Modern Times in 2017, to
widespread critical acclaim in their native Norway. Constant touring followed the
record release, and the gang has built a reputation as a notoriously rowdy live act,
converting non-believers to die hard fans mere seconds into each show.
