On the Horizon: Polychromic Explosion, Teardrop Factory.

I’m about as sneery when it comes to Topshop as your average daydream disbeliever made to trudge the length and indeed breadth of the eternally tedious, smog-addled aorta of central London that is Oxford Street on any given Sunday. I was mercifully spared this weekend just gone, though I spent it instead getting faintly acquainted with an EP entitled Topshop from Brightonian trio Teardrop Factory. It’s their début release on black wax, yet beyond the scratched veneer of a stereotypical lo-fi aesthetic resides a real knack for the fabricating of polychromic, ’90s-inspired pop ditties which belies their newly catalysed beginnings. Of course they ain’t exactly calling upon altogether innovatory reference points here, as the wan vocal delivery renowned of Kim Deal combines with the rickety squalls of Chelsea Light Moving and the like on Vanity Unfair. Though whatever – whether vainglorious indulgence or otherwise, they’re justly vying for your attention in amidst the unending jostle of nominal new bands
