Londoners Factory Floor cut a visceral swath through disparate dance halls, merging post-punk grit and acid house bounce into — as Philip Sherburne previously wrote — "taut, throbbing, overwhelmingly textural jams." The trio's rhythmic intensity and propensity for sweaty transcendence also lends their work to inspired reinterpretation, and their single "How You Say" is now getting the works.

Above, you'll find a brand new music video for the propulsive, Technicolor track, which hails from the band's 2013 DFA album, Factory Floor. The hypnotic clip captures vocalist Nik Colk Void within a television, and she bops to the beat, wind in her hair, as eye-boggling visuals are projected onto the scene. "How You Say" is also being remixed across two digital EPs and three physical 12-inch singles being released in succession, starting April 15. Contributors include Daniel Avery, Invisible Conga People, Gunnar Haslam, Bookworms, and Helena Hauff. More info, and tour dates, below.
