London based Factory Floor music is created by three, Gabriel Gurnsey, Dominic Butler and new member Nik V. They have had two releases thus far, self released 'Bi Polar' on 7" and 'Planning Application' EP / 12", on London label 1/1.

Factory Floor sound is incredibly dense, three-dimensional soaked in texture and colour. Often shifting from near evanescent and muted, to brutally concise atmospheric and ambient.

Their studio practice is not that far removed from a Scott Walker's experimental approach into meat-punching and box-bashing. Mix this with a good dose of poetic rambling, electronics, and poly rhythmic percussion; all elements consciously designated to their own space as to not clutter or provoke sense of overwhelmness. Together with their instinctive repetitive dance rhythms, hypnotic bass lines and white noise sporadic guitar, Factory Floor will pull our ears into hearing something fresh and unleash a new way of thinking.

Shared vocal duties from Gurnsey, Butler and Nik V, relay stories of memories hidden in letters, bleak abstract excursions of burning paper boys, personal anxieties and tensions; narratives you would assume had been written by an eccentric English graphic author.

What we can expect from each successive single/ album release in the future is for Factory Floor to welcome a new agenda. Not to say they sound confused, but the complete opposite. The result of an ongoing creative investigation generated in their basement studio in Hackney means we can look forward to hearing a spontaneous audio development, confidence united with instinctive primal sound, opposed to the dilution associated with today's Microsoft Songsmith generation.

Live shows around London for the past 8 months have been a success, leaving audiences anticipating more.

'Factory Floor demonstrate that it is possible to be both experimental and exciting. An open mouthed audience is forced to re-adjust, re-evaluate and respond' - Artrocker magazine.issue U.K

'Factory Floor make music the way a painter creates a piece of art- mixing together textures and sounds like paint on an easel. Whether they are singing about model airplanes, art, or fragments of memory, their music is broad, interesting and anything but banal' - Dazed & Confused Magazine/ issue 70. U.K

'Factory Floor's forthcoming Planning Application EP features experiments in found sound and ambiance that makes them intriguing as they are danceable- and when the mood takes them, Factory Floor are f**cking danceable' Fact Magazine/ issue 29. UK
