OnlineThe Actions announced their forthcoming EP Indefensible released 5th April via Niteo Records.
Indefensible is a collection of dark and atmospheric vignettes, with stylised guitar, vocals and percussion creating an ethereal world full of dystopian and existential imagery in which the listener can easily get lost. Silty’s voice transmits a dark sensuality that could bears comparison to Alison Goldfrapp or Portishead’s Beth Gibbons, except with a darker, harder edge. Nowhere is this more evident than EP title track, Indefensible, which blends punchy, distorted guitar with dream like vocals that could easily soundtrack a Lynchian dive bar.
They are currently pushing their boundaries of their sound to the limit, whilst working within the confines of what can be classified as a ‘song’.
The Actions are Mo Stellato (guitar) and Silty (vocals and bass guitar). Heavily influenced by Trip Hop, Dark Wave and Psychedelia, the duo began writing and producing their own music trying to create a fusion between the three, the resulting sound a product of years of experimentation and collaboration with different artists. Dedicated live performers, they’ve seen themselves sharing the bill with globally recognised artists such as REM, Green Day and I AM KLOOT.
The EP follows hot on the heels of single, The Echo, that was released in December 2014 and picked up support from the likes of BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson and Amazing Radio.
Indefensible was released via Niteo Records on 5th April 2015.
