The duo share the latest single from their forthcoming new album; listen below

Following Factory Floor's 2013 self-titled debut album, the London-based duo now share 'Ya', a new single from their upcoming album 25 25. Listen to it above now.

A playful and driving dancefloor-filling track, 'Ya' comes hot on the heels of 'Dial Me In', further cementing the band's minimalist sound after streamlining to a duo.

Having already boiled the scorched textures of their early singles down into their debut's hallucinatory club-not-club stomp, the duo seized the opportunity to venture further towards the club sounds they had been experimenting with, mixing the album with David Wrench (FKA Twigs, Caribou).

Inspired by playing a growing number of late night club shows, the pair's music gradually evolved into the sound captured on their second album and in their current live incarnation: a stark, ultra-minimalist and eerily soulful dancefloor pulse, yet one that still bears Factory Floor's unmistakable hallmarks of hypnotic repetition and jagged, punkish intensity. 25 25 is out August 19 via DFA.
