If I were to ask you to name a song by Modern English, there’d be a 95% chance that you’d reply with “I Melt With You,” and I wouldn’t blame you. After being released in 1982, the track has enjoyed spots on the UK Indie Chart (18) and the US charts (78). Heck, it’s even played on the radio today. I’ve heard a few people regard Modern English strictly as just “one-hit wonders,” and that’s simply not the case. Since their inception in 1979, the band has released 7 albums. Sure, some weren’t as great as others, but most bands have a hard time appeasing fans release after release. To be frank, the band is severely overlooked. The album that their most popular song is featured on, After the Snow, is actually an incredible album all the way through. Each track maintains a feeling that is reminiscent of the tracks on Bloodflowers by The Cure; some songs are more intimate while others are what you can call “happy.” After the Snow expands and elaborates on ideas presented on their debut album, Mesh and Lace, which is more post-punk sounding and even unsettling at times. So, if you are a fan of “I Melt With You,” you will more than probably enjoy After the Snow in its entirety. From there, you can check the rest of their catalogue which maintains some consistency with their other releases.
