Teardrop Factory are a messy indie rock band from Brighton, UK that play fractured pop music with a fondness for grit and distortion. Both sickly and sweet, the echoes of Guided By Voices, Sonic Youth and Jesus & Mary Chain can be heard in their perfectly formed 3-minute pop songs. Like their peers before them they strike the balance between satisfying hooks and head-spinning dissonance.
Faux Discx (home to recent releases from Hookworms, Cold Pumas, Sauna Youth and Vision Fortune) is proud to release Teardrop Factory’s debut 7” – the Topshop EP. The four songs contained within concisely showcase Teardrop Factory’s deft knack for penning an earworm, whether it’s in a Pixies-esque ripper like ‘Stolen Skull’ and ‘Topshop’ or the kaleidoscopic pop of ‘Better Company’ and ‘Vanity Unfair’.
