The Badwan brothers are hoping to call upon the spirit of Factory Records as they set out the blueprint for their new label Raft.

Faris, of The Horrors, and Loom frontman Tarik will showcase their roster for the first time with the release of a split 7″ entitled ‘Raft Records EP‘ comprising four bands hand-picked by the pair. It’s due for release in February.

“I think it’s quite easy for bands to lament the state of modern music, but there is always good stuff going on,” Faris tells NME. “Now more than ever, people can record music with the means available to them. It’s easy and it’s accessible and you can start a label and it’s not that difficult. We had this idea a few months ago and now our first record is pressed.”

“I like labels that have real personality. Factory Records, Captured Tracks – labels that have a real lo-fi spirit to them,” Tarik adds.
