Modern Mimes is an American music artist duo from Fort Lauderdale, FL. The duo consists of Adi Elcida Hernandez on vocals/guitar/sampling and Ernesto Paez on the double neck guitar bass. Their music can be best described as “Future Goth,” a term they coined in order to explain the fusion of alternative heavy guitar riffs, powerfully haunting vocals, subconscious provoking lyrics, electronic drums, and catchy pop melodies. The band have released a new video for their Deftones cover of “My Own Summer” (see below). Propaganda will be hosting the band’s CD release show on October 27th in Lake Worth, Florida.
After almost 3 years of quietly creating and crafting their sound, Modern Mimes released their debut album Wake Up in early 2017. Their single “Love Hate,” premiered on Blank TV and their video, directed by Carla Forte, was selected at various film festivals. They followed up their debut album with a cover of Type O Negative‘s “I Don’t Wanna Be Me.” The Goth Metal Legends not only approved of the cover but quickly promoted the single and video before it’s release. “I Don’t Wanna Be Me” has resulted in a successful 27k+ views on Youtube and was featured on Loudwire.com amongst other media outlets.
