Moderat: "Bad Kingdom" (Video)

Electro-pop trio, Moderat, has released its new album, II. "Bad Kingdom" is the first (and I think only) single from the album and it has a pop-melodic hook and soulful vocal strong enough to grab my attention. Check out the single and peruse the information below, which is courtesy of Mute.


Berlin based electronic music trio, Moderat have just released their meticulous and dynamic sophomore LP, II via Mute. Comprised of Sascha Ring (Apparat), Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary (Modeselektor), Moderat represent the very best in innovative electronic music infused with infectious and poppy vocals. IIhas dialed in the aesthetics of Modeselektor’s throbbing bass and tricky beats while maintaining the delicate vocals we’ve come to love and expect from Apparat. II is the most diverse and complex piece of work released by Moderat to date - confidently and capriciously capturing a broad range of the emotional spectrum.

You can watch the video for the album’s first single, “Bad Kingdom” HERE. Moderat also recently sat down with Eastern Collective to discuss the dynamic and direction of their collaboration, which you can watch HERE.

Poised to change the concept of what a live performance can be, Moderat have teamed up with long-time friends and visual artists collective Pfadfinderei to create an engaging and immersive show which will be presented to audiences in select North American cities beginning August 28th. Please see below for more info and tour dates.
