Fantastic harmony laden, synth goodness... this song makes me heart fly when the high notes are hit. An absolute winner.

Pulling some great sounds throughout this track. Not sure if I caught some Captain Planet-esque "EARTH!... WIND!..." The track kind of loses me on the outro though. Just really want it to go back into that catchy intro section. Intro for an outro... Hmmmm...

Great Melody, love the fact that it doesn't follow the conventional song structure. Really breaking the boundaries. Good Work

I like the melody lines in teh intro and verse. It seems haunting a both emotion filled. Some of the guitar sounds not unlike the cure but with more wide open road feels. Definitely sonething different but we should all stand proud and definitely put this in my gold coin pocket!

I like it, but would like to see whether you could pull this off live.

This has got a really cool vibe. Some absolutely exquisite melancholic guitar explorations had me staring at the wall and feeling very existential for a while. The lyrics feel a bit forced at times, stop trying to change the world and stare at the wall for a while.

Wow! Actor/Model have a dreamy be-reverbed vocal line on My Agent Says, which makes you wonder whether you're in Fitzroy or downtown Stockholm. After all, Sweden IS the new Canada. They also do the dual boy-girl vocal thing, which I love. The pop hook in the chorus could perhaps be a bit more pop, but the song has a great atmosphere and these guys combine the noisy guitars with the psychad...

The quality of the recording and (I assume) lack of cash available to get the thing mastered nicely might be the only thing between them and the radio. And they're 'political'. Jesus.

i can see this band being signed to someone like matador. i love the overall feel of the track and it builds beautifully. parts remind me of sonic youth but in no way are actor/model ripping them off. my favourite part would have to be that little feedback/noise section.... very nice!

Catchy and easy to listen to sound, especially the vocals without being insipid pop.

Sorry guys. Solid production, but I felt like I was listening to the Eurovision Song Contest. Maybe I should go back and turn on SBS... Cheers The La-mé Brothers

Nice sound. The lyrics take a back-seat to the heavy instrumentation, but it seems to work. I'd like to hear more from this band.
