Affairs From scattered English Counties, the band members of Affairs met at Hull University, drawn together by their mutual appreciation of 80’s music, art, slick hair, tight jeans and loose hips. Manchester-based Affairs are a sharply-dressed quintet, who have earned a reputation for their ethereal and theatrical live performances, considered lyrics and synth-based electro-pop rock. Their music contains elements that are both uniquely modern and nostalgic, as laptop-made samples and loops combine seamlessly with vintage Rickenbacker guitars and expressive, baritone vocals. Comparisons have been drawn to artists as diverse as Foals, The Smiths, Wild Beasts and Spandau Ballet. Affairs have supported the likes of Alt-J, Circa Waves, Dog is Dead, Coasts, Young Kato, Nothing But Thieves, As Elephants Are and JAWS.
