The Actions - "The Echo" (audio) (Premiere)

by Brice Ezell

17 October 2014

Following their tour dates with Green Day, the Actions have a new single, the bass-centric rocker "The Echo".

Marta Argenio (aka Silty) and Mo Stellato go by the name the Actions when performing music, which they have been doing a lot of lately. Coming fresh off of a series of shows with Green Day in Europe, the duo is gearing up for its latest single, “The Echo”, which will be released during the throes of the holiday season. “The Echo”, driven by an insistent bassline that’s placed front and center in the mix, is a somewhat brooding tune. Silty’s distorted vocals sound especially unsettling juxtaposed to the minor chords played by the guitar, which has a jazzy tone to it.
The duo says to PopMatters about the tune, “We’re very excited to show ‘The Echo’ to the public because this song is the first single from our brand new production. It represents the beginning of a new musical and sonic adventure for us. We really hope the sonic aspect of this track will echo in people’s minds!”  

“The Echo” will be available for download on December 8th.
