Announcing Gabe Gurnsey (Factory Floor) Solo Album 

We are proud to announce the next album on Phantasy will be from Factory Floor's Gabe Gurnsey.

He releases his debut solo album, Physical, on 3rd August. Today he shares the album’s opening track, ‘Ultra Clear Sound’, explaining: "I wanted to write a track that represents the addiction to bypassing reality through technology and nightclubbing, into a future virtual world paradise. An anthem for escapism."

If you want to know what Gabe Gurnsey’s debut LP sounds like, the first thing you should do is put aside Factory Floor, the group he co-founded 13 years ago. Gone are the cold, lengthy, stripped back deconstructions of no wave electronica and industrial techno, abandoned in favour of something altogether warmer, torrid and succinct.

And that new sound - a 21st Century take on muscular electro, Balearic synth pop, EBM, proto-Hacienda militant funk, early Chicago house and minimal, Neptunes-referencing beats - can be experienced in full on Physical. Encoded into the album is a seductive narrative, which recreates a night out

“It’s a real departure from Factory Floor” he says. “What I wanted to get into with Physical had more to do with exploring songwriting and structure. The album is very escapist in one sense even though I don’t want to escape from Factory Floor but what I do on my own has to be separate and it has to explore new avenues.”
