Modest Mouse are as perseverant as they are talented. First forming in Issaquah, Washington, back in 1993, the band would go nearly 10 years without reaching serious mainstream success—though that isn’t to say their music wasn’t good before they achieved mainstream popularity.
In fact, it was great: both underappreciated and bold. Beginning in 1994 with their first EP, Blue Cadet-3, Do You Connect?, Modest Mouse set out to have one of the most distinct sounds in the industry.
Getting Better and Better
They didn’t release their first studio album, This Is a Long Drive for Someone with Nothing to Think About, until 1996, but their effort the next year was even more well-received. That album, titled The Lonesome Crowded West, was recognized at the time by fans of indie rock as being a genre-defining piece of genius.
After releasing The Moon & Antarctica in 2000, Modest Mouse continued their meteoric rise to the top of the music industry. Their music was viewed as a success by critics and fans alike, and all they needed was a breakout single to solidify their standing in the American mainstream.
When the band released their fifth studio album, Good News for People Who Love Bad News, that single was created. It was called “Float On,” and it took Modest Mouse to unexpected heights. They performed it everywhere, including on Saturday Night Live, and it was that song that put Modest Mouse on everyone’s radar.
