Mastered by Joe LaPorta at The Lodge this summer, Class Actress is fronted by vocalist/glam girl Elizabeth Harper along with producer Mark Richardson and engineer/multi-instrumentalist Scott Rosenthal.
If you've been around the Williamsburg indie music scene, then you would probably be familiar with Harper's prior solo work. Harper was more known for her strummy/whisper-y love songs (more along the lines of a modern day Morrissey or The Smiths with female vocals). After a unique meeting with Richardson at a club a few years ago, Harper decided to switch gears and replaced her guitar with a synth and the rest was as they say, history.
Citing influences like Depeche Mode and Human League, Class Actress is like an 80's new-wave time warp but with a more modern pop twist and tragically romantic lyrics that will make your heart swoon.
