A meandering blend of bucolic folk, experimental jazz, and psych-tinged indie rock, Modern Nature is a project from U.K. artists Jack Cooper (Ultimate Painting, Mazes) and Will Young (Beak, Moon Gangs), who first appeared in 2019 with the EP Nature.
Following the 2018 breakup of Cooper's former band, the acclaimed indie rock outfit Ultimate Painting, he began working with Young on a new venture that took cues from the classic British folk of Bert Jansch and the exploratory jazz of Alice Coltrane, and fused it with elements of the indie rock from which they came. Enlisting cellist Rupert Gillett, drummer Aaron Neveu (Woods), and saxophonist Jeff Tobias (Sunwatchers) to complete their ensemble, the two set about recording their debut release.
Modern Nature tour dates listed on Ents24.com since Jun 2019.
