Fan Modine is an American indie pop band, whose core member is singer and songwriter Gordon Zacharias. Originally based in Boston and New York City , Zacharias has lived in Carrboro, North Carolina since 2001.

While living in Boston's Chinatown, Zacharias first developed a concept for a film exploring the experiences of an American pop star, Fandemian Kirk Modine, living in China. Although no film was ever made, his debut album Slow Road to Tiny Empire, released in 1998, was conceived as its soundtrack. He further explored the concept on his second album, 2004's Homeland.
