The Sunshine Factory
Cork City, County Cork
The Sunshine Factory is a 5-piece Neo-Psychedelic band from Cork. Pulling from varying influences spanning from shoegaze and krautrock to post-punk and noise-heavy psych, they create a unique sound that has bagged them support slots from such bands as The KXP, The Orange Kyte and an Irish tour with shoegaze legends, The Telescopes. They released their first EP "Cruelest Animal" in November 2017 on their own independent label Sunshine Cult Records to favorable reviews from the likes of The Thin Air, Hot Press and The Last Mixed Tape. As well as this, they have been featured on The Thin Air's 18 for '18 list as ones to watch in 2018. The band recently closed the Friday night of The Quarter Block Party festival and have plans to release a double A side in late February.
