ZERO ZERO

Zero Zero is an electro-fuzz-pop project by Nicole Laurenne and Michael Johnny Walker (both of The Love Me Nots), and drummer Nick Ramirez (The Dead Eyes of London, Beezlewood, Butcher Jones).

Original tracks are currently in production, influenced by Sleigh Bells, The Sneaker Pimps, Santigold, Beck, and the Ting Tings. An October 2012 debut EP release is planned on Atomic A Go Go Records. An early demo recording of "Drug" went into rotation on Phoenix radio unexpectedly in June 2012 when Laurenne gave the demo to a disc jockey during a live interview. Two demos are now spinning on independent specialty radio shows out of San Francisco, Boise, and Berlin.

As the team behind garage rock act The Love Me Nots, Laurenne and Walker have written and released five albums, toured the world, appeared in feature stories in Rolling Stone, Spin, Village Voice, Austin Chronicle, LA Weekly, and UK's Classic Rock, among many others, achieved regular rotation on Sirius/XM Radio and commercial radio specialty shows worldwide, and saw their entire discography re-released by french label Bad Reputation Records. Laurenne was named Best Frontperson of 2010 by The Arizona Republic and Walker was featured in Fender’s The Soul of Tone video. Laurenne and Walker continue to collaborate with many other artists on on-going projects.

FACTORIES

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 decid- edly more hypnotic, visceral, and deeply affecting elements into play. Esoteric electronic beats provide the backbone for soaring guitars, crashing keyboards, and intense lyrical con- tent; 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 the Handsome Furs, Phantogram, Postal Service, the Raveonettes, and Mates of State.





/// 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).
