Patawawa – live
+ Handstand Parade – live
We are excited to bring Patawawa back. Picked by NME as ‘Ones to Watch in 2018’ before their debut EP had even been released, the Matlock band have enjoyed an incredible 18 months, finding favour with everyone from BBC Radio DJs Huw Stephens, Tom Robinson and Lauren Laverne to ‘Stranger’ Things star Millie Bobby Brown, who is launching her new brand ‘Purple’ with the band providing the soundtrack.
Having been tipped by the likes of The Line of Best Fit, The Guardian, Clash and many more picking up comparisons to artists ranging from Chic to Madonna, Two Door Cinema Club to Foals, Patawawa have quickly defined their own sound, honed on a series of increasingly riotous festival appearance and sold out tours of the UK.
“… summer belongs to them!” – NME
“Reminiscent of Greco Roman vagrant Roosevelt and keyboard pioneer George Duke” – The Line Of Best Fit
“… joyous, buoyant vintage pop filled with acres of charisma & effortless style” – DIY
“… radiates the sound of peak-period Nile Rodgers/Bernard Edwards or early Madonna” – The Guardian
“Reminiscent of those early Two Door Cinema Club anthems, the bristling electronics mingle against sighing vocals, tinged with melancholy” – Clash
“… destined for big things” – Metro
