Bristol-based duo The Actions have shared new single Flourish, the title track taken from their forthcoming album, due for release on February 15th, 2021 via Niteo Records.
Flourish summarises the whole album in one song as fear is instead replaced by strength and hope, The Actions imploring us embrace the gift of life once again. Watch the video via YouTube below.
The album explores themes of fear, anxiety, escapism and change. The record encapsulates a moment in time; the moment you overcome your fears, take a deep breath and embrace the unknown of a new you, leaving your old self behind. Flourish is about letting go, finding your way forward. Flourish is about rebirth.
Having met as kids, Marta Argenio aka Silty (vocals, bass) and Mo Stellato (guitar, electronics) performed together in a number of bands and soon started to make inroads in London. Benefitting from a shared musical path, the pair formed The Actions with the intention of creating dark, cinematic slices of music. Evocative and transcendent, forthcoming album Flourish offers the grandiose orchestral sensibilities of Vangelis and blends this with the grooves and dense atmospherics produced by artists such as latest Low and Portishead.
Their enduring sound has seen them pick up press support from the likes of Clash Magazine and Nothing But Hope And Passion, as well as airplay from BBC Radio 6 Music’s Tom Robinson, Amazing Radio’s Simon Raymonde and John Kennedy of Radio X.
Flourish is out now and available to stream on Soundcloud.
