Boomkat Product Review:
Billed as Brooklyn’s nouveau Madonna, Class Actress (or Elizabeth Harper to her mates) is the latest in the production line of sleazy electro-tinged ladies with a penchant for that 80s blue neon and dry ice we’ve all almost forgotten. Coming after Glass Candy, Desire and Nite Jewel there’s a lot for Harper to prove in a well represented genre, but where her peers angle their sounds towards the flicker and grind of a long-forgotten disco, Harper appears to set her sights on a more mainstream sound. There are songs on show here that you could almost imagine accompanying an 80s teen movie, and while Harper adds a subtle literacy to proceedings with some knowingly shadowy lyrical content, there’s no denying that ‘Rapproacher’ is a great pop album. The production from beginning to end is top notch; high fidelity but buzzing with the kind of fuzzy hypercolor synthesizers we’ve all become obsessed with in the last few years, and replete with a rhythmic shuffle that Human League would be proud of. ‘Rapproacher’ might revel in all things retro, but when the music’s this well done, who can argue with a bit of 80s fetishism?
