Modus is a solo project started in 2006 by Mal Davies, one time keyboard player in the 80’s Liverpool band ‘Always The Now’. Exploring a life long interest in World music and combining it with his electronic music background he has taken Modus on a musical journey that has led to the release of the EP “The Colour of Love” in February 2009. The EP has received much acclaim with it’s diverse mix of ambiences ranging from the Neo Classic “The Colour of Love”, the fusion of Indian instruments and Arabic vocals of “Sutra” to the pulsating remix of Donna Summer’s “I Feel Love”. In May 2009 Modus collaborated with Australian singer/songwriter Jewls Wilson http://www.last.fm/music/Jewls+Wilson on the track ‘’Secrets Untold’’ Hopefully more tracks will result from this partnership.

3. Modus is an independent electronic / experimental producer from Northern California.
4. Modus is an Alternative / Indie / Progressive-Rock band from NY, USA.
5. Under the same name, also a Scottish mod band.
Modus is the sort of band that makes accurate description difficult. They manage to create a sound that is totally unique to themselves. One does catch glimpses of their progressive influences such as Genesis/Peter Gabriel. This band certainly has the knack for creative song-writing in that one song may have a jazzy vibe with soul, while another song surprises you with it’s heaviness and raw emotion. Despite the varying styles, the music manages to maintain it’s continuity. Fans of Tool, Porcupine Tree, Radiohead, Coldplay, Pink Floyd, and Genesis will definitely get into this.
6. Under the name too, a lithuainian dark electronica band.
