They are SoS (aka Susan OShea) on vocals, synths and analogue digital devices, and Matt Davies covering bass, beats and magic mixes. Factory Acts was born following the accidental creation of a new sound, and a hastily written two song instrumental debut at Salford Lads Club. They hit the local gig circuit in 2012 self-releasing two singles, Senseless and Fantasy, both of which have received repeated air play on BBC Introducing Manchester, Irelands 2FM, Salford City Radio and numerous internet stations worldwide. Since then they have performed live from Manchester to Doncaster, from Leeds to London, taking in Cork on the way. Factory Acts has played the Salford Music Festival, headlined the Pussy-Whipped festival in Edinburgh, and played alongside bands such as Salford legends Kill Pretty, plus Vile Electrodes, Tom Hingley, Ste McCabe, Naevus, The Witch Hunt, and the Jan Doyle Band to name but a few.
Two years after their live debut, Factory Acts release their first EP, Thirst, on 4th July 2014 via Manchester-based independent label AnalogueTrash Records. Featuring four stand-out tracks of analogue-electronics that combine SoSs esoteric and haunting vocals with the pulsating, otherworldly beats and rhythms of Matt Davies. If you have a thirst, Factory Acts will leave you wanting more.
