“American Factory” is a simple yet hard hitting punk inspired song from the alternative rock band POSE. Intricate guitar lines weave in and out of one another as they sit over an almost mechanical driving bass line.
Throughout the song the vocals vary from in intensity, sometimes floating airily above the music while at other times digging in with aggression and emotion and eventually all out shouting. The lyrics offer a subtle introspection over the role schools and societies play in sculpting children into teenagers, almost as though they’ve come straight off of a production line.
About POSE: POSE consists of: Ruby – Vocals and Guitar, Marc – Guitar and Vocals, and Richard – Bass. Having come from backgrounds covering indie pop, grunge, and post-punk, POSE have unearthed a collective sonic understanding that bridges elements of hard hitting alternative rock, scintillating pop, and grandiose soundscaping. This culminates in a sound which blends Ruby’s ‘hypnotic yet soulful’ voice over music which is full to the brim of ‘teeth and claws’.
This desire to push creative boundaries is what POSE is all about and has seen them continue to create an unadulterated product into which they have poured their heart and soul.
“American Factory” is out now along with ‘Ten Miles” and “Nothing” which you can find on all music streaming services.

In the words of Chris Corey: “I wanted to have something structured with a powerful riff + vocal melody that blended with the overall tones to pull the listener in. Of course, I’ve recorded it with modern technology to help give it that final patina of freshness that I think would help it stick out on the radio.”
Raised in a small city in Northern Canada, Chris Corey splits his time between Ontario and Western Canada where he’s currently working on releasing his debut album. “This record is really a mixed bag of everything.” He said when asked about the direction of the material. “I really tried to pull from a variety of influences on the newer tunes, I didn’t want to hold back thinking something wasn’t possible.” Drawing influences from a variety of genres including rock, pop, blues, country, folk and new wave, his new album promises to be a treat for listeners with wide musical palettes. Chris plans to drop his debut album in late 2022 and follow that with some live gigs to promote the record.
