    This Year's Modern - Gavin Bowles & The Distractions
    3:300:30
“This Year’s Modern” is the debut album from Blue Mountains-based troubadour Gavin Bowles. Following on from the single releases of “The Daily Grind” & “Apartmentality”, “This Year’s Modern” could not come at a more poignant time.
Written during a year of urban apartment bliss, financial struggles & on a steady diet of beer & coffee, “This Year’s Modern” encapsulates the many moods, quandaries & adversities one might face as a young, modern ne'er-do-well & takes aim at the frivolousness of life in 2020, but not without having a little fun in the process. Musically the songs bounce between the frenetic energy of opener “Modern Rage”, the slinky groove of “Apartmentality” & the rockabilly swagger of “Slave”. “This Years Modern” is a unique blend of indie rock, rockabilly & power pop styles (driven by backing band ‘The Distractions’) and ponders how to cope in the modern world. Out now on Stranger Than Fiction Records.
​Over the past 3 years Gavin has lived in the heart of North Melbourne, Western Sydney & the Blue Mountains; soaking in the atmospheres, sights, smells & sounds of differing urban & suburban living and music scenes. With over a decade of touring and recording under his belt in various groups and solo, Gavin (& backing band “The Distractions”) exhibits a refined live show, toting songs of personal triumphs & tribulations and an idiosyncratic view on modern life, always with a guitar lick and smirk in tow.
