BandRock

A three-piece band with a lo-fi, high energy philosophy, Actor Slash Model utilise cheap toy keyboards, synths, old beat-up guitars and inventive, pounding drums to construct simple, beat-driven pop songs with an experimental noise punk slant. But they're classy.

Biography

There must be few bands that can boast support slots of such a diverse range as Actor Slash Model. From the chaotic punk of Die! Die! Die! to the harmony-drenched pop playfulness of the Crayon Fields, Actor Slash Model are the go-to band for any night that demands energy and beauty.
Unpredicable in their approach to a set, they tailor themselves to what the night needs, and with a huge amount of improvisation tied in, there's always a sense danger.
The sonic noise-pop that the trio create is truly a genre of its own, but takes cues from indie bands such as Yo La Tengo, Sonic Youth, Electrelane....always a tug of war between noise and melody, there are frequent breath-taking moments.
Their debut release 'Gossip About Guys' shows the band at their most diverse, five songs covering such a different spectrum of sounds. It attracted glowing reviews from Sydney to Wellington to Italy. Please check out the press page. A very special band.

Lyrics

My Agent Says

Written By: Anson/French

My agents says it's not too late
I've got to shed some more weight
I don't get up until I'm paid
My best friends are Nicole and Kate

Smart career move, off the catwalk
onto red carpet...

I go to parties everyday
I wear versace tourniquet
Expressionless botox face
I tell my agent I'm OK

Smart career move, off the catwalk
onto red carpet, actor slash model
not a user
not a has-been
not an air-head...
