The best kept secret in music


"Modern Daze Somnambulance"

Copy Link
I could listen to Modern Daze’s ‘Somnambulance’ all day. The track has this really chill rock/pop vibe that I’m digging.

According to the press info, the track has a dark lyrical texture, which depicts a main character stuck in a daze, with an absence of direction and who is sleepwalking through life. - Music is my Life

"Modern Daze at Sunset Tavern"

On a chilly November Tuesday, three Puget Sound rock outfits warmed up Ballard’s Sunset Tavern with solid grooves and hot moves. Seattle-based Vaens started the night off, and Tacoma-bred Modern Daze brought up the second slot. Punk surf-rock quartet Jayomi closed out the evening, and each band left the intimate crowd cheering for encores - Dan’s Tunes


Still working on that hot first release.



Modern Daze is an indie pop outfit from Tacoma, Washington formed in 2018. The lineup consists of Russel Groves (Keyboards), Matthew Lester (Bass/Guitar/Vocals), Travis McCulloch (Guitar), Taylor “Skooter” Murrey (Drums), and Zachary White (Vocals/Guitar/Bass).

Stylistically, Lester & Groves bring smoky elements of jazz, soul, and psychedelia while Murrey accentuates funky grooves with a spicy latin twist. Mix that with the post-punk influences of McCulloch & White, you end up with a main course dish of ambient funk pop.

Modern Daze released their first self-titled EP in the summer of 2019 and is working on an LP set for 2020. The group has been performing actively in the Pacific Northwest, becoming known for their high energy shows.
