Sometimes you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror and realize the look you're sporting isn't as flattering as you once thought. So it is that Modern Skirts recognized the need to give their old sound the heave-ho.
The Athens band formed in early 2004 and, by summer of the next year, had released the well-regarded debut LP Catalogue of Generous Men. They followed that with 2008's All Of Us In Our Night, recorded with help from David Lowery and Mike Mills. But they were already chafing at the confines of their musical style.
"That first record is really poppy, a lot of piano. It's just what we did when we first met," says bassist Phillip Brantley. "We sat on it for three years and people pigeonholed us into this nice piano indie-pop band, which isn't what we were or what we were ever going to be. We've learned a lot and the sound has changed."
