Modestep are very much a sort of ‘does what it says on the tin’ act – I mean, what more would expect than a dubbed up work-out of immense proportions and a whole heap of general WOB-iness? And new single Show Me A Sign doesn’t disappoint, certainly bettering previous effort Sunlight while it’s at it too. It’s trick is a Pendulum-esque fusion of all the standard club-driving elements with a rock sensibility that suggests Show Me A Sign as a real one for the festivals. You can almost imagine it now, a packed, steaming tent somewhere in Glastonbury, the lights down low, bodies heaving away to this. It’s music for the body to come alive to, and sometimes that’s all you need.
Show Me A Sign is released on the 30th April.
