Here at NadaMucho, we’re all about the local music love, so it’s with pleasure we bring you the exclusive release of “Pseudosupervillain,” the new video from local garage-surf-punk band Actionesse.
The track, the second release from their forthcoming debut EP, Mignon, features the band’s controlled chaos to a T, with dirty, ska horns and clamoring vocals that rise to a boiling point.
In its video incarnation, two rival tennis teams take an ironic spin on the court in the match of their lives. Suited up, swigging from a flask, throwing rackets, and losing mustaches, the players bring to life the jam-packed frustration and plummeting rock and roll rhythms of the promising new tunes.
The EP, recorded with Ahren Lanfor – who boasts work for a long roster of other local up-and-comers – in Tacoma, “Was really fun to make,” says bassist Paddy Moran. “We kinda consider it to be our best representation of how we sound right now.” The cover features a pretty stellar handmade knit pig’s head on a platter. The pig’s name, by the way, is Grundy.
Mignon is available FREE on Bandcamp beginning Sept. 1.
