Modern Woman have shared “Ford“, their first new music since the release of the debut EP Dogs Fighting In My Dream. Over angular guitars and pounding drums, lead singer Sophie Harris details the story of a girl borrowing her brothers Ford. “You have to treat her or you’re messing up the outside” she sings with a stern intent as if its the most important instruction you’ll ever hear. The twisting melodies and up and down vocal passages that Harris delivers drive this track to make it both weird and wonderful in every moment, never knowing which path it might take next.

“‘Ford’ has been one of the oldest songs in our repertoire.”, says singer and guitarist Sophie Harris, “I wrote the bassline loop for it a long time ago, one day when I only had a bass to hand. I structured the song and added guitar and simple vocal. I wanted to give it a raw and slightly sinister feel to it. We can spend an incredibly long time working a song in our practise space before we ever play it live, so we wanted to make sure that energy resonated through the recording”
