fauxdiscx:

It’s with great pleasure that I can announce the release of Teardrop Factory's debut album Thrash In The Heart.

The Brighton based duo of Andy Ward and Tina Muat pick up from where they left last year’s excellent Topshop EP but expand their alternative 90s worshiping earworms with an added layer of noise. Grit and scuzz consume 13 pop songs about mermaids, electric ghosts, car crashes, geometry, surfing, eating insects, video games and lucid dreams.

There’s a home-spun charm to Thrash In The Heart that recalls kindred home-recording enthusiasts Guided By Voices; pop distorted via shitty microphones and self-destructed songs. In other places you may hear a clang and batter akin to Times New Viking or a 60s pop crooner buried under VHS fuzz. It’s coming straight at you, but shrouded in fog.

Made at home by the band and recorded in their bathroom, then mixed with Julian Tardo (Church Rd Studios / Bowlegs) and finally, mastered with MJ (Hookworms) at Suburban Home. ‘Thrash In The Heart’ will be available via Faux Discx on September 15th.

You can pre-order the BEAUTIFUL pink swirl vinyl exclusively from Faux Discx HERE. All orders (both pre-order and whilst stocks last) will come with either a special bonus CD of alternative versions of songs, or a copy of their previous Topshop EP 7”.

There’s also a standard black LP version, as well as a CD and of course, it’s available digitally. Either order from Faux Discx or use one of the pre-order links below:
