Together, the debut full-length album from Phoenix-based three piece Factories, brings a new take on electronic pop music. Many of the endearing qualities one would come to expect from the genre - catchy hooks, danceable beats, sweet harmonies - are there, but Together also brings decidedly more hypnotic, visceral, and deeply affecting elements into play. Esoteric electronic beats provide the backbone for soaring guitars, crashing keyboards, and intense lyrical content; all perfectly formed into beautifully organic and tightly knit soundscapes that exist somewhere between Phil Spector and Shoegaze. Ear candy abounds, as do comparisons to Handsome Furs, Phantogram, Postal Service, The Raveonettes, and Mates of State.
Debuting in the CMJ Top 200, Together received heavy national airplay and charted on over 50 college radio stations eventually reaching #1 on University of Kansas’ KJHK (ranked #15 in the nation by Princeton Review’s “Best College Radio Station”).
Along with releasing a series of music videos, Factories spent 2011-2012 distinguishing themselves as one of the most prolific and successful live bands in Phoenix, playing with Youth Lagoon, Toro Y Moi, Young Magic, Braids, Painted Palms, Crystal Stilts, Purity Ring, El Ten Eleven, Gardens and Villa, An Horse, and many more.
More recently, Factories have been hard at work writing and recording for the highly anticipated follow-up to Together. The future is bright for this Arizona trio.
/// After the successful release of their self-produced EP in late 2010, Factories spent 2011 distinguishing themselves as one of the most prolific and successful live bands in Phoenix, playing with Youth Lagoon, Young Magic, Braids, Painted Palms, Crystal Stilts, Purity Ring, El Ten Eleven, Gardens and Villa, An Horse, and many more. All the while, they have continued to work on recorded material, to include Together, a single of "Canada," and a series of music videos (due out in the first quarter of 2012).
Emby Alexander combines music, film, dance, and art. Haunting, beautiful, and intelligent. Experimental Pop Art.
