Before she was making synth pop with Class Actress, Elizabeth Harper was playing guitar and doing the singer/songwriter thing. Then, producer Mark Richardson remixed one of her songs, and Harper saw the electro-light. Now Harper, Richardson and producer Scott Rosenthal turn out new wave numbers like this wickedly infectious track. As a lead singer, Harper emanates seductiveness with a nonchalance that only the most confident possess. That combined with the synth groans and sampled beats make this tune a perfect storm for bloggers.
