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. There is fuzz and reverb but most importantly there are songs that will lodge themselves, stubbornly, in your head.
Faux Discx 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 through the kaleidoscopic pop of ‘Better Company’ and ‘Vanity Unfair’.
