Formed in a basement in 2019 in Tupelo, Modern Bodies blends homegrown psychedelia, crafting murky pop songs with space infused noise rock with fuzzy kaleidoscopic explosions. The group initially formed as a trio consisting of Matt Pugh on guitar and synths, Preston George on guitar and vocals, and Trey McCarter on drums, eventually bringing in bassist Jesse Sutton in 2022. The band released a number of home-recorded psychedelic pop singles on their own label Gun Club, a few of which ended up on various online compilations and cover records. In 2023, the band signed on with Earth Libraries and set to work on their debut full-length debut.
Produced by the band, “Marble Requiem” was recorded from 2021 at home in Tupelo and features Matt Pugh and Preston George, Modern Bodies’ core duo, performing with Jesse Sutton (bass, backing vocals), and Trey McCarter (drums, backing vocals), the band’s live lineup. The album's artwork was painted by Mara Califf. Inspired by space-rock and 70’s psychedelia, Marble Requiem takes Modern Bodies into a two part psychedelic odyssey, harkening Pink Floyd and Todd Rundgren.
