Affairs

Synopsis

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.

Comparisons have been drawn to artists as diverse as Foals, The Smiths, Wild Beasts.

Affairs have supported the likes of Alt-J, Circa Waves, Dog is Dead, Coasts, Young Kato, Nothing But Thieves, As Elephants Are and JAWS
