Modern World is the second album from 26-year-old Iowa native Max Jury, set for release by Marathon Artists. The follow up to 2016's critically acclaimed, self-titled debut, Modern World is a graceful, sophisticated and truly contemporary body of work, brimming with Jury's vast and eclectic range of influences. It is an album about life, friendship and facing each day with a renewed clarity.
Produced by four time Grammy nominated Robin Hannibal (Kendrick Lamar, The Internet, Jessie Ware, Anderson .Paak), the album is steeped in soul and jazz influences. The stunning Stillness for example, arrives with a bassline that wouldn't sound out of place on a Thundercat record. Fading Out of You manages to evoke Jury's newly chosen home of Paris before a huge RnB beat comes in, complimented perfectly by the warmth and subtlety of his vocal, which since his debut, has grown into an androgynous instrument that dances across his music.
