Guest Actors

From the forthcoming album True is a combination of melting melodies combined with an urgency of pace, giving the effect of a journey filled with pleasured anticipation knotted by nervous tension. Guest Actors are able to balance the two concepts in the almost five and two thirds minutes track resulting in a song that holds the listeners attention.

About to head out on an extensive, twenty four gig, three country international tour starting in China on the 14th before heading back to the US and concluding in England on the 26th of September they found the time to head in to the studio for their new single.

The winding guitar, bowing synth and delayed echoing vocal gives the track a trippy feeling in which the listener the listener can discover a kaleidoscope of colours in which to take the imagination on a free-flowing ride. It is the punctilious percussion and compacting bass which keeps the track in alignment which, whilst, allowing the song to develop its sense of expansiveness equally ensures its progression until, as sharply as it opens, suddenly – dead on the three minutes mark The Lowdown abruptly concludes.

In addition to the various tracks around, word arrives of an EP out later in the year and these are a group of musicians to get to know in the early stages of their career. Their whimsical thoughts are gathered inside well structured and delivered compositions.

The most recent song is Honeypot (available on bandcamp) which is also their most fiery with a headlong rush of energy that grabs hold of the listener and pulls them to the dance-floor. The elongated guitar giving the song its infectious warmth and the bass its depth.

A ten track, approximately forty two minutes, album (available on bandcamp) that is highlighted by the luxurious textures that swirl around the room.

There is a melancholic undertow to the songs that captivates attention as the subtle synthetics extend the bars of the echoing guitar and vocal giving the tracks their emotional draw. The percussion cuts through the hazy musical layers through which an extremely capable vocal expresses the context of the compositions.

My selection from Wild Empty Promises is the seventh – Cover Me In Roses.
