Irish artist EDEN gave us a new single this week called ‘Modern Warfare’ which is a super cruisy electro/R&B treat that is so very easy to get lost in with its glitchy synths, laid-back guitars and EDEN’s soothing vocals. It’s one of those songs that feels like a nice warm hug, and as he reveals below the story behind the song is quite inspirational as well.
“This song is a meditation on the blurred lines between life and interaction online and irl, there was a time where I had rejected certain aspects of social life by refusing to use the tools of our time, and modern warfare came after a period of reintegration. There is a sense of maturity coming into these spaces and situations after time away, despite how urgent everything can feel. An ability to not be dragged into the reactionary anxiety that is so often associated with social media. This is not to say that there isn’t plenty of anxiety to be found elsewhere – just that knowing what you want from things is a helpful way to avoid getting rekt. Water off a digital duck’s back.” – EDEN
