Child Actor – Against The Night
Based on the quality of their work, I would have figured the dreamy electro duo Child Actor would’ve been an international sensation by now alongside other similar acts like Purity Ring and Young Wonder. To me it’s not really a matter of if it’s going to happen, but when for the young and ever-so gifted Max Heath and Natalie Plaza. They’ve got a follow up to my second favorite LP of 2012, Victory, that’s obviously one of my most anticipated on the year. We got our first glimpse at what’s in store with the release of the new single “Against The Night”. Not that I was expecting anything less, but this most recent offering does nothing but amp up my excitement for a record I, quite frankly, am expecting a hell of lot from. And If it’s anything as good as this euphoric, synth pop gem then their sophomore LP Never Die is set up to be one of the best on the year.
