After vocalist/double bassist Evan Younger and mandolinist Josh Hirshfield met on their freshman hall at Princeton University, “MOMS” was born. The now Brooklyn-based band fuses classical textures, disco kinetics, and explosive dynamics in string-driven mutiny. Including conductor-by-day cellist Geoff McDonald, Aussie violinist Kieran Ledwidge, and drummer Tyler Pines, Miracles of Modern Science has been uniting crowds of discerning musicians and dancing party-goers alike through their band of orchestral rock. MOMS’ 2011 debut Dog Year earned raves from NPR and Paste and ended up on year-end best-of lists for Wired and Beats Per Minute. Their new followup EP, MEEMS, pushes the limits of their acoustic instruments even further, ending up both crazier and catchier than its predecessor. The result resembles pop music, but you can sense the band ripping apart and rearranging its underlying mechanics like mad scientists.
