Giana Factory consists of Louise Foo, Sofie Johanne and Lisbet Fritze. Since 2008 an old warehouse in the outskirts of Copenhagen has set the scene for the creation of this trio’s unique musical universe - A manipulation of easily accessible pop towards the darker recesses of electro and avant-garde.
In October of 2008, they took the stage at the popular Copenhagen club, Little Vega, for their debut concert. It marked the start to an intense period for the Danish trio, whose current and seductive sound quickly caught the attention of the public eye. 2009 was inaugurated by a staggering procession of concerts in the Nordic countries, not least by the fact that Giana Factory was invited to be support band for Scottish Glasvegas on their Scandinavian tour. It was a perfect start, which truly led Giana Factory inserting themselves into the field of awareness, among both
industry and listeners. The growing interest culminated in the summer of 2009 when they were invited to play at Spot Festival (Aarhus), Start! Festival (Copenhagen)
and not least Roskilde Festival - A concert that will forever endure as an amazing and memorable milestone.
Very well received among prominent music media, the concert gave rise to widespread coverage, despite the fact that Giana Factory hadn’t yet manifested their music into physical form - It still existed only in the band's live performances. That changed in October 2009 when Giana presented their first record in the form of the EP “Bloody Game”, released on Music For Dreams. The EP, which was produced in collaboration with producer Tomas Barfod (WhoMadeWho, Filur) invited the listener into a foray of
dreamy dark pop songs with electronic beats, deep synth, a hovering guitar presence and seductive vocals.
A unique and authentic sound, inspired by an ambition to play in the crossfire of pop and the alternative, the organic and the mechanical, the classically acoustic and the futuristic. Despite having only four tracks “Bloody Game” experienced widespread rotation on the radio as well as being named one of the best Danish albums of 2009, by the well established Scandinavian music magazine Soundvenue.
Since the release of the EP in 2009, Giana Factory has further expanded their horizon with an extensive European tour as support for Danish band, The Asteroids Galaxy Tour, as well as a series of solo concerts, including the Norwegian festival BY:Larm where they were invited to play in February 2010. And as a final tip of the hat to the trios´ relevance and potential, they were nominated for the award ‘P3 Talent’ at the P3 Gold awards in Copenhagen in January 2010.
