Help Modern Skirts!
My brother-in-law manages this Athens band. If you and I have had a conversation about music in the last 3 years, you have likely heard me recommend Modern Skirts to you. They are in the studio working on CD #2 at the moment, but they are trying to get a song from their first CD (Catalogue of Generous Men) some airplay on MTVU, which is an MTV network that actually shows music videos — current ones! I have no idea where one can watch MTVU, but I think it’s offered to many U-niversity and college students who live in residence halls and dorms and other university housing structures. The network has a show called The Freshman. If the Skirts song is picked, it gets added to the regular rotation. That would be a huge kick in the pants for the band. (A good kick in the pants.)
If you’ve ever dialed up iTunes after watching an episode of Grey’s Anatomy to locate that song playing over the obligatory montage in the last 10 minutes of every episode, you know first-hand the power of the exposure a band can get by having one of their songs playing on a network. Here’s your chance to help out a band that is very good. And I can attest that they are not only very good on CD (like Snow Patrol) but also very good live (not like Snow Patrol).
Watch the video of their song Pasadena, which is my favorite off the Catalogue CD.
Then vote for the song HERE. If you need more encouragement to pick Modern Skirts, three of the students on The Freshman show picked the Skirts song after listening to all 5 candidates.
