about

The third full length from Shortwave Research Group is a Brutalist monument rendered in sound. Towering concrete structures push against the skyline and low frequency pressure seeps from every crack in the granite.

Spanning eight tracks, it would be easy to classify this record as dark ambient. However its influences are drawn from a much wider set of places, taking in techno, hip hop and modern classical compositions.

REVIEWS

"...this mysterious project manages to capture all of my favourite elements of dystopian, post-apocalyptic, and cinematic music. Playing this on repeat during lockdown is the right path to dread. But it’s also the right path to light, as you crawl from underneath its collapsing concrete structures, that seem to close in on you with every paranoid breath. Cavernous bass drops and post-industrial percussion reverberate in this airy open space, bouncing against the metal walls of the imprisoned dismal sound. Hints of vehement phobia, pandemonium, and pre-dystopia swirl in an intoxicating cocktail of a dreaded past, unruly present, and the inevitable future."
- Headphone Commute (Best of 2020)

"Fabryka is cold, compelling and gloriously cinematic."
- Electronic Sound
