Actions are a four piece British Pop Rock band from London.
They are determined and committed in performing, writing and recording and seek to stand out above the rest. Being inspired by bands such as Deaf Havana, Lower Than Atlantis, Futures, Hit The Lights and Cartel, Actions deliver poppy, hook-filled harmonies and catchy rhythms with a technical rock edge which gives them a sound that is very much their own.
The band consists of Calum Hartley (vocals and guitar), Drew McErlain (guitar, vocals), Duncan Ash (bass) and Finn Lomax (drums). Collectively they have just under 40 years experience in performing, writing, recording and touring. Each member grew up in bands, and they know nothing else but simply being experts at what they do.
Formed from friends wanting to create a band in a genre they were passionate about, Actions began life in early 2012. By Easter the band were gigging across London and were playing well attended shows across London at the likes of Islington Academy 2, Nambucca and Dublin Castle. At the end of the year, Actions were very well received as a support act for mid ‘00s ska-punk heroes [Spunge] at a sold out show at the Borderline.
During this time the band also recorded and produced a six song EP. The EP has yet to receive a formal release, but teaser CDs have proved popular at gigs, as well as free downloads. With a new video recorded, Actions plan to launch the EP along with a tour to support its release and take 2013 by storm
