Steve Balbi - Modern Love

Steve Balbi - Modern Love
First cutting his chops on bass with Kevin Borich Express at just 17 years of age, Balbi was very much the child prodigy. Although the creative chameleon’s species being was soon liberated as Balbi cultivated an indelible production and song-writing partnership with Justin Stanley; first founding and producing Aussie chart-toppers Noiseworks (1986), before forming the Electric Hippies (1993).

In 2011, Balbi accepted an invitation to front 1970s and ‘80s new-wavers Mi-Sex, who will next year mark the 40th Anniversary of Graffiti Crimes and Computer Games. Then in April 2018, the world became a very different place for millions of Australians when Dr Jordan Nguyen and his extraordinary team of dreamers at Psykinetic launched Atmosphere – eye-controlled technology that enables people living with high-level physical disability to use only their eyes to make music.

Yet it's Balbi’s debut solo LP, Black Rainbow (2013), and its subsequent surreal reprise, Rainbow Black (2016), which appears to have set a point of departure for his enigmatic artistry, and manifestation of his forthcoming solo LP – Humans.

About this track...

Composer and producer, Steve Balbi mines a kaleidoscope of life at the margins. In Modern Love, Balbi casts an eye over modernity, reflecting upon love in a world dictated by technology and technocracy. Transcending rock and pop as it coalesces sentimentality and soul, Modern Love fuels an irreverent riff that carves a dirty rotten groove through verse, melody, madness.
