Class Actress – “Keep You”

By Amrit Singh / June 27, 2011

Class Actress’s debut EP Journal Of Ardency channeled ’80s analog synth and New Order-styled new wave into dourly romantic electro-pop on the back of tasteful production, chilly hooks, and the presence/persona of its songwriting principal, Elizabeth Harper. Since then, the project has kept busy with tours, covers, and bowling, and working on its full-length debut. The record, titled Rapprocher (French for “to come closer”), finally arrives this fall via the band’s new label, Carpark (the Journal EP came via Terrible Records). It’s fronted by a song on par and of a piece with Journal‘s standout “Careful What You Say,” called “Keep You.” It is a jam of an MP3, which you may take with you:
