1. Modern Boys Puppet Theory 2:56

P{uppet Theory drops an #indie bombshell in the form of their new single and video titled ‘Modern Boys’. Besides being catchy as hell, ‘Modern Boys’ gives a glimpse of that layered songwriting style implementing guitars over guitars with a hybrid style beat and hook-filled rhythm that, when put together, gives you a glimpse of that signature sound that Puppet Theory is sure to be known for.

This is the start of the decade, folks. This is the time when the artists who will define that decade come around. Puppet Theory has a good start.

About the song, the band says:

‘Modern Boys is an almost satirical song about modern boys and girls. They try too hard, they think a lot of themselves but they can’t afford to take you out on a date. The band wanted to write an up-tempo track with both modern and classic indie influences to reflect the modern theme of the track’
