Unless you had their bio right in front of you, you'd never peg impressive four-piece Actress as being from anywhere other than the U.K. And you'd have to be cheating to guess they're from Tennessee(Chattanooga, to be exact).

Biography

"Unless you had their bio right in front of you, you'd never peg impressive four-piece Actress as being from anywhere other than the U.K. And you'd have to be cheating to guess they're from Tennessee(Chattanooga, to be exact). The band's music has the stylized swagger of the Britpop biggies, sounding like a blend of Muse and Suede, with a little dance-floor verve bubbling underneath for good measure. So far it appears there's only one self-released Actress recording(Isolation). But, if they are not already signed, with a sound this accomplished and charismatic it should only be a matter of time before you find 'em at your favorite record store.

Lyrics

Such A Bitter End

Written By: A. Ficchi

Fell into the snow
At 8:00 she waited 'til dawn
Arcades and pills and days
What summer shudders to show

And the kids here pretend
That cigarettes were something
We planned

Arcades and pills and days
What summer shudders to mend

And it's such bitter end

Fell into the snow
At 8:00 she'll wait until 4:00
Arcades and pills and days
What summer shudders hardcore

But the kids here pretend
That cigarettes we something
We planned

Arcades and pills and days
What summer shudders to mend

And it's such a bitter end

A Minor Heart Attack

Written By: A. Ficchi

I won't say it out loud
I won't say it but I'm going to know
You're the only thing around
Everytime I think of love

Underneath all long goodbyes
Going through the telephone wires
Is someone breaking up?

It's old-fashion
It's so high-tension
It's the first and last
Minor heart attack

And of course it won't be heard
Be heard by the ones
Who'll give you away and of
All those things you've learned
Made mistakes without change

Underneath all long goodbyes
Going through the telephone wires
Is someone breaking up?

It's old-fashion
It's so high-tension
It's the first and last
AMinor heart attack

Please, Imagine An Explosion

Written By: A. Ficchi

Would you stare at me
If you had love?
Even from your bed you said
You had no choice

So please, imagine an explosion

I couldn't save your life
I couldn't cope
but I was just a boy

So please, imagine an explosion

I couldn't save your life
I couldn't cope
but I was just a boy
