Modem is a Helsinki-based synth pop duo that fabricates dystopias of the past and future, questioning the possibilities of media and human communication.The band started as a simple experiment with vintage synthesizers and drum machines which eventually turned into haunting, danceable music. Inspiration was found from minimal electronics and new wave as well as Italo disco and film soundtracks from the late 1970s and early 1980s.
In 2022 Modem released two 12”singles through their own label Modem Age Records. Both releases Elokuvia and Luxuria were well-received and attracted listeners from all over Europe. The duo is currently working on their first album which will be released in early 2024.
