EP Review – Factory – Dynamite
What makes us at Little Indie Night and unZined excited? Promising musicians/artists and bands. One of these promising bands is at moment going from strength to strength. That band is Factory who hail from Runcorn. They are definitely on our radar for doing big things on the music scene locally and eventually nationwide. We’ve been keeping updated with them throughout the last two years, first when we interviewed them when they were starting out with a demo, Love Must Do. Since then they’ve played countless gigs throughout the North West and released their EP Tomorrow is Now, which was amazing. Check them out.
For their latest release, Dynamite, Factory have stuck with their signature sound, a rock / funk / blues hybrid of a sound, which can be heard from the start with an poweful fuzzy bass riff thanks to Tony Dainteth and further accompanied by Benjamin Worrall’s great upbeat drum rhythm and funky lead guitar. Their sound at first bares a resemblance to something you’d hear from the Stone Roses, but with the inclusion of frontman James Shelley’s rough and well sung vocals together with backing vocals that aid the lead instead of swamping them, Factory come into their own. The guitar throughout, provided by Karl Richardson, is first class, showcasing his ability and dexterity enabling him to rip-roar through the upbeat parts and perform a more subtle style when the songs tempo takes a dive. When the song quietens down just after the mid-point it has you checking if the song has actually ended… but alas no, the band return with an encore to end the song in style. What we have here is four talented musicians coming together and creating a track to impress. Here’s to many more!
