After heading up The Disappointed, Michael Strong and the Ghost Anyway, Generals & Majors, Young Girl, making records for nigh on 20 years in a broad spectrum of genres, producing a host of records for Perth heroes like Pat Chow, Odlaw, Stacey Ann and Veruca Moon – Perth veteran Michael Strong aka Alyosha has finally delivered his pop masterpiece.
Modern Man in Search of a Soul uses every piece of that experience and craft to full effect. It’s a rich, lush, ambitious and accomplished production, a stunning blend of minimalism and maximalism. Warm, soulful and quite beautiful. Thematically uncompromising and confronting.
MMiSoaS is the follow up to the Little Creators EP (2022), an RTRfm feature record.
“I’m wrestling with God on this album, which makes it a pretty scary release for me. We’ll just say that people I’ve known forever are looking at me pretty funny right about now. I feel like a bit of an alien in the industry, which is exactly the way I like it. This is for sure the best album I’ve got in me.”
