Event Description
ACTORS, Mary

From Vancouver, Canada, ACTORS electrify with a modern take on post-punk. On debut full-length It Will Come to You, anthemic songs evoke the urgency of early-80’s U2 (Boy, October, War) as well as the driving, synth drenched scores that emanated from the era's movie screens. As scene authority Post-Punk.com puts it, the band conjures “cinematic new-wave... that belongs on a Michael Mann soundtrack.”

Frontman Jason Corbett’s rich vocals command with all the passion of a young Bono and the coolness of Peter Murphy. Songs like “L’appel du Vide,” “Slaves,” “Face Meets Glass,” and “Bury Me” are bangers that glisten via Corbett’s production job: slamming beats propel warm layers of synth, guitar, and vocals. Corbett writes, produces, mixes, and masters all ACTORS music at his own Vancouver studio, Jacknife Sound.

Corbett names David Bowie as a fundamental influence - Bowie’s sense of confidence and creativity are in full effect on It Will Come to You. But much more than a “retro” act, this is music that stands all on its own, full of life and unforgettable hooks. Perhaps best described as a “post-post-punk” band, ACTORS belongs in the discussion alongside bands of today like The Soft Moon and Cold Cave who are pushing music forward via a deep knowledge of the past.
