After a 3 year silence, mysterious Chicago duo Acteurs return with not only new music, but the debut of new label MILD VILNC. Their signature bleak - downtown punk sound remains intact, welded together by stark noise and a tense momentum. It's minimal all around but not lacking for substance, each track pushing the boundary between simplicity and unknown force.
The 5 tracks collected on the Corridor EP show Acteurs turning their already strong aesthetic on it's head, opening it up from the other side. Mini mantras butt up against scrapes and drones, tied together with rhythms built and taken apart again. It's the sound of a future you may not want to be a part of, but we don't really have a say in that do we?
