Indie-pop-rock-new-wavers (and friends), We Became Actors
wrote a rousing fire-up tune about Pablo and Doodles inspired by the Bright Side Knights post. (I’ve also written a children’s story and poem but am waiting to hear if it either is published before posting them here.)
Watch the video. It sounds like the greatest U2 song they never did.
What do you think Jesse is singing? He hasn’t provided me with lyrics yet as they’re probably still being tweaked. But the mood of the song comes across loud and clear. The highest praise I can give were the evident goosebumps on my arms when I saw them perform it. They’ve told me they may even want to include Pablo and Doodles in the video.
When Pablo, Doodles and I listen to music we often air band jam together (especially in the car). Pablo plays lead guitar, so he said he was Christian in this video. I’m on vocals, so I got (had?) to be Jesse. (Don’t let it get to your head, sir.) And Doodles is on drums, always.
We’re extremely flattered. Thanks to Jesse, Christian and Paula (bass) for a song that gave me a chill.
Check out We Became Actors at the Stone Arch Festival on June 21st. Their EP, This is Where We Stand, inspired by INXS, The Cure, U2, Bloc Party, Tegan and Sara, and Metric, will be available this summer. Buy it.
