Recorded at The Waiting Room, Brisbane. 19th September 2014.

Cracked Actor are a Canberra group that have been active since late 2010. They play electronic pop that twists and turns with meticulous vigour. Their songs call to mind the more glitch-y, rhythm-driven material from Radiohead’s most recent albums. This year they released their latest single ‘Hollywood’ in anticipation of their forthcoming 2015 album on HellosQuare. It follows last year’s single ‘Lemon On Your Lover’ which saw remixes by Raus, Sam King and Reuben Ingall, among others.

Listen to Cracked Actor’s latest single, ‘Hollywood’, over on bandcamp.
