It’s the weekend! What better time, then, to listen to this alluring slice of synth pop from Class Actress. The Actress, as they’re not known by anyone, are a trio from Brooklyn – although you wouldn’t have thought it from the way that frontwoman Elizabeth Harper dominates interviews, videos, and such like.
‘Weekend’ is taken from their debut album, ‘Rapprocher’ – which is receiving no small amount of acclaim in some corners of the music press – and we are rather fond of its combination of breathy vocals, squelchy synths and almost comically 80s rhythm section. It has a kind of listless whimsy about it – until you watch the video, which is downright raunchy.
So we don’t really know what to say about it, but have a look and then be excited about the fact that you don’t have to go to work for the next 48 hours.
