Model/Actriz Announce Debut Album for True Panther Sounds

2 min read

Brooklyn four-piece Model/Actriz have announced their debut album along with a North American tour. Dogsbody arrives February 24 via True Panther Sounds. Today, the group has shared the new single “Crossing Guard,” which drops references to Lady Gaga and J.M.W. Turner’s painting Rain, Steam, and Speed. Watch the accompanying music video, directed by Nathan Castiel, below; plus find the LP’s tracklist and the group’s upcoming tour dates.

Vocalist Cole Haden, guitarist Jack Wetmore, drummer Ruben Radlauer, and bassist Aaron Shapiro are Model/Actriz. They co-produced Dogsbody with Seth Manchester, who also mixed the album.

The visual for “Crossing Guard” was inspired by the body’s fragility, and references Butoh—a form of Japanese dance theater. “For ‘Crossing Guard,’ I wanted to depict a day in the life of a normal suburban American family,” Haden expressed in press materials. Model/Actriz shared Dogsbody’s lead single, “Mosquito,” last fall.
