LONDON BASED ALTERNATIVE ELECTRONIC POP OUTFIT
For the avoidance of doubt, unfortunately the group do not manufacture paint.
Their name is simply a homage to the building they carry out their work in, a converted paint factory in South West London, where the perfect trifecta’ of alternative electronic pop was born. With continued backing from BBC Introducing, Paint Factory are definitely on the radar as one of the UK’s most exciting up and coming acts.
Collectively the trio draws upon influences from the likes of The 1975, Massive Attack & Tune Yards. Their live sets encompass various technologies, including time coded projections for aesthetic and cinematic effect, which, combined with soaring vocals, hefty bass and gut punching beats creates quite a spectacle.
Paint Factory's constant consensus is to approach difficult affairs and address either taboo or untoward topics with certainty and conviction. Their upcoming single “Listen To Her Speak” takes a head on approach to the current environmental crisis and the tragic attempts governments have made to fight it. The group stands with “Music Declares Emergency” and will continuously strive to speak up and out about the current climate and ecological emergency.
This single is just the start.
