“We’re a Salford based post-punk dark-electro duo. We exist at the edge of the analogue-digital divide, sometimes dreaming, always dancing. Cork at heart.”

Factory Acts are a Salford-based post-punk dark-electro duo. They exist at the edge of the analogue-digital divide, sometimes dreaming, always dancing.

They are SoS (aka Susan O'Shea) 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 Lad's 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, Ireland's 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 SoS's 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
