We’re an indie pop /cinematic rock duo called HARD ACTORS, featuring Joe Bailey, Alfie Pawsey, and live drummer Saif Rahman. We come from Cambridge, UK – but these days we write and record more in the big, scary capital!
As a band we are influenced by mostly vintage stuff, liiike David Bowie (I like Station to Station, Alfie prefers Ziggy!), Beatles, Small Faces, Fleetwood Mac, etc. Then there’s more recent great stuff like Foster the People, Kimbra, Muse… We could go on forever! But those ones always come to mind.
Here’s a little quote from a local promoter about our music: “HARDACTORS are at once emotive and adventurous – beautiful music for desperate times.”
Oh BTW – I should say that we have a *music video* for you called ‘Half Moon Eyes’, it’s from our debut EP BLOOM which came out everywhere on 8 December 2014 on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, and more!
We are currently writing new material, gigging as much as possible and trying to reach out to as many fellow music-lovers like YOU!
We hope to be able to do some shows in Canada one day! The closest we’ve ever come so far was Joe doing a set at an open mic over in a little town called Okotoks, Alberta during a visit last year!
Oh, and we almost forgot – enjoy!
Joe and Alfie
