Singer, composer, performer and producer, Steve Balbi (Noiseworks, Electric Hippies, Mi-Sex) has returned with his new single, Modern Love, landing at #3 on the iTunes rock singles chart. The song casts an eye over modernity, reflecting upon love in a world dictated by technology and technocracy. Transcending rock and pop as it coalesces sentimentality and soul, Modern Love fuels an irreverent riff that carves a dirty rotten groove through verse, melody, madness.
In a nice twist, the riff has also been snapped up by Fox Sports. Initially called upon to compose and record the theme song for Gus Worland’s new magazine show on Fox Cricket called Cricket Tragic, Steve ended up composing and recording the theme song for The Big Break, which runs during lunch and tea time sessions during Test matches and features the riff from Modern Love.
Yet perhaps the greatest achievement is the honour of composing the new Test Cricket Theme Song. Recorded with members of the Sydney Symphony, and conducted by George Ellis, the theme premiered at the launch of Fox Cricket, at a lavish function held in the Hordern Pavilion, hosted by all the living legends, including Adam Gilchrist, Brett Lee and Ian Healy, among many others.
Modern Love is out now on all digital platforms.
