Formed in 2018 at the precipice of the latest garage-rock resurrection, Modern Eyes is a Los Angeles-based band that combines elements of early 00's alternative music and Britpop for a sound that reinvents the boundaries of a genre revival.
Modern Eyes draws upon the impact of their predecessors such as The Strokes, Oasis and LCD Soundsystem to create music with feelings of both vintage rock and futurism. The band is centered around the concept that the nebulous idea of "rock" as we know can be tinged with sonic elements that span generations and scenes without compromising an authentic feeling.
With their early 2019 release, Conversations Kill, Modern Eyes quickly captured the attention of a growing fan base in the Southern California area. Modern Eyes diversifies themselves from other modern artists through a sound that isn't derivative of legacy acts, but one that pays genuine homage to their musical contributions.
A group of experienced musicians from diverse recording backgrounds, Modern Eyes, as a unit, serves as a collaboration that is a long time coming for the individual artists as it is a true meeting of visions and talent that are recognized on the same plane. Modern Eyes is Andy Groke as lead vocalist and guitarist, Troy Ambroff on lead guitar, Joe Pertusati on bass, Tim Ozer on keyboards, and Edgel Groves on drums.
