Still working on that hot first release.



Hailing out of Berkeley, Ca, TAYLOR MDNA and The AcTiOn FiGuReS is an Indie Punk-Hop Band. Previously signed to Chuck D’s label “SlamJamz” as “C U Next Weekend,”TAYLOR MDNA and The AcTiOn FiGuReS played over 50 shows nationwide. While touring, the band opened for acclaimed artists—some of which include Public Enemy, The Memorials, and The Cataracs. Most recently, TAYLOR MDNA And The AcTiOn FiGuReS has created an outstanding collection of music; one which simultaneously pushes and merges the boundaries of psychedelic rock, punk rock, and hip hop.
With music written by Taylor MDNA and produced by Dan Eℓectric and presented by Clinton Sparks (mixtape version), “Punk Hop” underwent multiple transformations during it's conception. Now complete, this 10 track album introduces a unique brand of alternative creative genius.
“TAYLOR MDNA AND The AcTiOn FiGuReS skews more rock than hip-hop. The songs are power-chord heavy and often climax with a sprawling guitar solo. And the group uses fast, propulsive rock beats rather than the programmed drums of hip-hop. Nonetheless, Taylor MDNA (and “The AcTiOn FiGuReS”) still straddles the line between genres — which might be the key to its success.” -Eastbay Express
“A great combination of high and low energy, both able to move you. That’s a quality that develops over time from good musical chemistry, I am very impressed with the "PunkHop" project.” -CHUCK D (Public Enemy)
“I blend genres, adding all the flavors I can, coming out with a united sound that I hope every kind of person will love. I’m not afraid to experiment and push past what people expect of popular music. The result is a sound that you can’t quite put your finger on, just like my city, and just like me. All I ask is that you roll with me on this journey.” -TAYLOR MDNA
