…Vanity Unfair has a great durgey indie vibe and whilst it’s the track that Faux Discx have chose to place on Soundcloud to promote the EP, it’s by no means the only good track on there. The Topshop EP is plenty enjoyable from start to finish and means that Teardrop Factory already sit comfortably within a roster of exceptional piers the likes of Vision Fortune, Cold Pumas and Hookworms but to name a few.

I love it when all I have to do is check my email to find good music. Its is the sort of track people smoked weed and went skateboarding to in 1991- hard and trashy with a dash of pop sunshine. Can’t wait to hear the rest.
Imagine being shrouded in a hazy, confusing but effortlessly cool fog; this is the effect that Teardrop Factory manage to create. Better Company and Vanity Unfair have a fuzzy, distorted quality that is completely unique. Stolen Skull and title track Topshop are perhaps more widely likeable and accessible; the lyrics are actually coherent and the melodies are instantly catchy. Overall it seems Teardrop Factory have perfected the art of glum teenage moodiness without it becoming downright depressing. The Topshop EP is completely unlike anything currently in the charts, and this could work in their favour, opening people’s ears to a new type of gritty indie rock.

the cool kids at bowlegs have featured “vanity unfair” as track of the day. check it out here
Brighton based Teardrop Factory mire themselves in swampy reverb and pop hooks in the vein of various alt 80s band such as Pavement and Jesus & Mary Chain, scratching their way into your earboxes.
