A Salford-based post-punk dark-electro duo, Factory Acts exist at the edge of the analogue-digital divide, sometimes dreaming, always dancing.
Cork at heart. They are Susan O'Shea on vocals, synths and analogue digital devices, and Matt Davies covering bass guitar, beats and mixes. Factory Acts was born following the accidental creation of a new sound, and a hastily written two song instrumental debut at the legendary Salford Lad's Club. After wowing audiences and critics alike with their debut EP Thirst in 2014, Salford's underground, postpunk maestros released their highly-anticipated follow-up, the Second Amendment EP, in April 2017 on Manchester’s alternative electronic label AnalogueTrash. Factory Acts have received repeated air play on BBC Introducing Manchester, Ireland's 2FM,
Salford City Radio and numerous internet stations worldwide. They played two sets at Electric Picnic 2017 and are regulars on the Manchester and Salford gig circuit, also having played in London, Leeds, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Dublin and Susan’s native Cork. Factory Acts have supported Kite Base (Savages), Brix and the Extricated (ex-Fall), The Skeletal Family, 1919, Cruxshadows, Tom Hingley (Inspiral Carpets), Clan of Xymox and
London with electro-Goth legends Naked Lunch.
