LATEST PRESS/LIVE SHOTS:
LATEST PRESS RELEASE:
Hailing from the dark industrial heart of Manchester, Affairs are a sharply-dressed quintet, who have earned a reputation for their ethereal and theatrical live performances, considered lyrics and synth-based electronic indie. Their music contains elements that are both uniquely modern and nostalgic, as hard hitting synths and sequencers combine seamlessly with rhythmic guitars and a truly unique vocal creating a sound that has been described as ‘audible chocolate’.
Comparisons have been drawn to artists such as Foals and Wild Beasts with James Moore - Independent Music describing the bands sound as “Somewhere in between The Smiths, Joy Division, Interpol, and modern indie rock, Affairs are a very interesting new five-piece from the UK. The word has been spreading fast about this young band with a classy sound”
Aaron Phillips - Amazing Radio described Affairs as “Electro Pop, fused with Guitars and vocals Morrissey would be proud of”
Affairs have recently played with the likes of Alt-J, Coasts, Nothing But Thieves, Circa Waves, Dog Is Dead and JAWS. They can count on Tom Robinson, Alan Raw and Steve Lamacq for support.
'Life of Lesiure' the new single by AFFAIRS is available to stream from September 9th 2016 and will be available digitally, through Fierce Panda from October 7th 2016'.
