Previous new band features Class Actress have revealed details of their debut album along with a FREE MP3 entitled ‘Keep You.’ Their new album ‘Rapprocher’ is an 11-song synth journey through the push and pull of a tumultuous love affair. The debut full-length album from Class Actress will be released 17th October via Carpark Records. The set is the follow up to 2010 EP Journal of Ardency, which was released on Chris Taylor of Grizzy Bear’s Terrible Records.

Elizabeth Harper is the creative voice behind Class Actress. The Brooklyn-by-way-of-Los Angeles musician teamed up with producers Mark Richardson and Scott Rosenthal to create their sound, described by New York Magazine as “unabashedly slick electro-pop beats juxtaposed with coy, romantically depressed vocals.” With this album, Class Actress have crafted sensual music about tragic romance and the eternal longing for what you can’t have. ‘Rapprocher’ is a love letter telling the story of a relationship that’s yearning to go another round.

The album sees Harper playing a similar part to Journal of Ardency’s playful lovelorn diva but it pushes the EP’s proto-electro revisionism into new directions. Tracks like “Love Me Like You Used To” and “Hanging On” swaddle the record’s heavy disco beats in diaphanous sheets of delay, and the bouncing bass of “Weekend” make it a prime candidate for a feel-good summer hit. Harper’s secrets and Richardson’s beats liberate the listener and freedom reigns on the dance floor.
