Song Bio

Label: Stem.is

Totaled is a song about both self-destruction and externally directed anger. Produced, written, performed, mixed, and mastered by Restless Modern.

Restless Modern Bio

While Restless Modern made his debut with production work on “Navigator,” a pop single that has been streamed over 9 million times, the young artist didn’t put out his first self-produced, self-written, and self-performed work until late that year. “I’m Okay” was the first single off of his To Come Undone EP, a dark and introspective body of work that has accumulated over 1.8M streams since its independent release in early 2018. “It’s always been my goal to handle every part of the music myself. When I’m making the productions, writing the lyrics, singing the songs, and mixing/mastering the records, I can get as close to my vision as possible.”  RM has been featured in press outlets like Atwood Magazine, EARMILK, NEST HQ, Ones To Watch, Indie Shuffle, Acid Stag, MTV, and more. He has also been featured on top-level curated YouTube platforms like Taz Network, WaveMusic, SuicideSheeep, and many others.

Restless Modern, aka Jack Kieffer, cites artists like EDEN, The 1975, and Blackbear as key influences, though he is cautious to describe himself in terms of others. “Every single day is about improvement and differentiation. I listen to and study the art that I love, but my job is to create something that no other artist can create. Something that is unique to my perspective and my abilities - so that’s what I’m shooting for.” RM graduated from Harvard University in 2018 and is currently working on his artist project full-time in NYC.
