Biography

London, England (2010 – present)

Modestep is a band from North London, England which formed in 2010 . The band started with Josh Friend {Vocals / Production / Keys}, Tony Friend {Turntables / Production / Guitar}, Matthew Curtis {Drums & Percussion} and Nick Tsang {Guitar}.Their sound clearly takes influence from progressive electro and dubstep - as one of their fans stated they like to make music which “makes your brains wobble with low bass filth” , in reality not all Modestep’s tunes aim to be as filthy as possible which is much the trend of the times, in what can possibly be seen as a post-dubstep progression; where bass-heavy music is never avoided, however, incorporated in an eclectic manner with electronica. Modestep’s live shows take place every Sunday on their radio stream at http://modestep.co.uk/radio.

The music video for their second single, Sunlight, which was released on YouTube on July 3, 2011, passed 1 million views within four days and when it was was released by Polydor Records on August 12, 2011, it debuted at #16 on the UK singles chart. ( Sunlight Songfacts).

On 14 January 2014, Tsang and Curtis both left the band to pursue their own careers in the music industry. Despite this the album is still scheduled and a world tour is expected, the band will be looking for new members to succeed them, soon.
