Modern Skirts

“Born of four hopeful rednecks and numerous misconceptions, Athens, Georgia’s Modern Skirts crept onto the scene in 2005 with its piano- laden debut record, “Catalogue of Generous Men”. The record was very well received, landing at #11 on Paste Magazines’ 50 Best Albums of 2005. Pop Matters also praised the debut for its “impeccably structured, gorgeous pop”.

More recently, “Gramahawk” reintroduces Modern Skirts as a band honest to their musical tastes. These songs strut with a creepy swagger made from lost vintage beats, freaky found sounds, and booming drums. Perhaps the most striking aspect of the record, though, is its insight into Gulley’s dark, imaginative, and humorous brain. A song about Gulley’s second DUI, an ode to 80’s one-hit wonder Jane Child, and a stomping, aggressive mantra about taking off your date’s top while being serenaded by a Mariachi band are just the beginning. There is a gleeful and twisted pop evil afoot here." (Courtesy of the Georgia Theatre )
