A sunny concoction of indie, synth-pop beats, ‘Going Steady’ serves as a candid and lighthearted reflection on the hardships of marriage.
With playful candor and lighthearted fun, Modern Temple releases their first love song in the form of a bouncy, high-energy track perfect for sunny days and catching feelings. ‘Going Steady,’ out now, is no run-of-the-mill love song. Balancing both the excitement of finding a partner with the inevitable challenges of a lifelong relationship, Modern Temple captures magic on the track. Written by husband and wife duo Dustin and Ellie Moreau, the song was finished, ironically, on the day of their four year wedding anniversary. Created out of a “reservoir of voice memos” off of Dustin’s phone, the song turned out to be a blend of organic indie-pop sounds emphasized by the ukulele and bass guitar, with a categorically danceable synth-pop beat, a strong melody and high-end vocal falsetto layering to top it off. “This fun up-tempo dance track gives balance to the deeper parts of the album,” Dustin explains.
