The Modern Savage
Retail Space
Retail Space is made up of Brooklyn-based trio Isabelle Burnet, Alberto Casadevall, and Jacob Rosse. With a foot in all-analog tape production techniques, their folk influenced and new-wave sound is heavy in harmonies and warbled guitar tones.
The group met while attending Purchase College, N.Y., where each were drawn to the eclectic and prolific music scene. Upon graduating, they moved to Brooklyn and it was during this time that Burnet learned bass. Burnet and Rosse began dabbling in songwriting together in 2013 and realizing their complimentary vocal stylings and similar melodic approach to writing, Retail Space was formed in 2014. With the money they saved while working, Burnet and Rosse pieced together an all-analog recording studio in a small practice space. It was there that they wrote and recorded both their first and second albums. Upon completion of these records, Casadevall joined the band on drums. Their debut record, In The Lotia, was self-released in the spring of 2016. It was well received by indie bloggers and is currently being made into a visual album.

Their sophomore record,You Can Catch A Lobster With Eggs But Not Egg Salad, puts an emphasis on airy vocals, clean guitar tones, and dampened drums. Produced with an 8-track tape machine, it draws influence from Arcade Fire, Mac DeMarco, and the tight girl/guy harmonies of Fleetwood Mac.

The band is currently working on their untitled third record.
