Biography

The Actions, London based alternative rock band. Hundreds gigs played in Europe including MTV On Stage, the Arezzo Wave Festival, the Heineken Jammin' Festival, opening for R.E.M., GREEN DAY, GARBAGE, DISTILLERS, I AM KLOOT, AFTERHOURS, ALMAMEGRETTA... The Actions soon began winning band competitions. Their first demo led them to make inroads in the UK receiving a rousing reception at the historic Cavern Club in Liverpool for two years in a row and getting airplay on DJ Pete Tong's BBC Radio 1 show "The Essential Selection" with Planet Funk's remix of their song "The Real Thing". The buzz around the band and their worldwide fan base are growing day by day thanks to their live activity and the good reviews from international press. Their first album "Real" has been licensed to Nikita Music, a Brazilian record label based in Rio De Janeiro and released in all Latin America. Then, after opening 2 dates of the "VASCO ROSSI TOUR" at Arechi Stadium in Salerno in front of a total audience of 90000, The Actions signed a one album publishing deal with Warner Chappell (Italy) and released Real in the rest of the world. Recently the single "The Real Thing" has been chosen by MTV US and included in the movie "My Super Psycho Sweet 16" O.S.T. airing in USA and worldwide on MTV channels. After that the band passed through a period of artistic collaborations and sound experimentations that led them to the conception of brand new material. The Actions' singer Silty (Marta Argenio) has been invited by TRICKY to perform one song with him on stage at Melkweg in Amsterdam ("False Idols" tour 2013). Silty has been chosen by Tricky after recording a vocal track on his unfinished track. Right now The Actions are promoting their brand new INDEFENSIBLE ep in London.

Lyrics

The Real Thing

Written By: Melon Rouge

Brothers and sisters
It’s all so fake
Teachers and preachers
It’s all so fake
All the good friends I’ve got
All so fake
I ain’t gonna live my life
Like a big mistake

Are you watching
Are you watching me
Are you watching
Are you watching me

It's in my head
It's in my head
Don’t you see me
It's in my head
It's in my head
Don’t you feel it

Brothers and sisters
It’s all so fake
Teachers and preachers
It’s all so fake
Lovers and friends I’ve got
All so fake
I ain’t gonna live my life
Like a big mistake

For all the things I’ve done
You won’t bring me down
All the things I’ve got
You won’t take apart

It's in my head
It's in my head
Don’t you see me
It's in my head
It's in my head
Don’t you feel it

It's in my head
It's in my head
Don’t you see me
It's in my head
It's in my head
It's the real thing

The real thing

People
It’s fake
All around
Fake

Why don't you all just fade away

Good Sensation

Written By: Melon Rouge

Rise up when you fall
Let your body know
When it’s time to change
Don't crash down again
Let me take you faraway
Try my way today
Just leave your perfect world
It's time to let go

Good sensation
Get your body rolling on the floor
Good sensation
Good sensation
Get your body rolling on the floor
Good sensation

And if high tide should come
Breath in and dive deep down
Let it take you faraway
Nothing left to say
Now you’ve got all the time
Breathe out you can fly

Good sensation
Get your body rolling on the floor
Good sensation
Good sensation
Get your body rolling on the floor
Good sensation

I'll take you faraway
Let your body go
I'll take you faraway
Away

Good sensation
Everybody is rolling on the floor
Good sensation
Good sensation
Everybody is rolling on the floor
On the floor
On the floor
On the floor
