Watch their new video...

The Modern Strangers spent the bulk of 2018 on the road, conquering the world on a show-by-show basis.

Initially from Tunbridge Wells, repeated forays into Scandinavia has allowed the band to develop a fanbase there, with their shimmering indie pop finding a reception audience.

Booking some cheap flights to Iceland, The Modern Strangers arrived determined to shoot the video for their new single 'Magic Hour'.

It's the latest preview from their incoming 'Visions' EP, which will land on July 12th.

Produced by Gordon Mills Jr, 'Magic Hour' billows with a life of its own, an effervescent return from a group with a knack for earworm melodies.

The clip pits this against the incredible Icelandic scenery, with The Modern Strangers commenting: "We were really lucky to find some cheap flights to Iceland, where fittingly, the four hours of daylight they have when we went are always 'Magic Hour'. We wanted somewhere with huge scenery for the imagery; everywhere you look there is simply spectacular."

"It was pretty challenging, given that after the four hours of light, it goes dark incredibly fast, so we shot the rest of the video in our homeland of Dungeness and Camber."

Tune in now.

The Modern Strangers will host an EP launch party at The Fiddler, Kilburn High Road, London on July 11th - grab your ticket HERE before they run out.
