Patio will release new album ‘Collection’ on September 22nd.
The band emerged from the DIY communities in Brooklyn, merging post-punk aspects with some daring, inventive ideas. Supporting the likes of Pile, Dry Cleaning, Patio have built up monthly retreats in Hudson Valley, using their time to write and create.
New album ‘Collection’ is out on September 22nd via Fire Talk, a 12-tracker that melds the rhythmic pulse of ESG or Tom Tom Club, say, with melodic ingenuity. Unafraid to sketch outside the lines, Patio have a unique sound, one that isn’t easy to pin down.
New song ‘Sixpence’ leads the way, with reference points such as early Roxy Music and Bowie’s habit of reinvention being cited by the band. It’s more than this, however – teasing, complex musicality, it also has a very left-field pop sensibility.
“‘Sixpence’ was conceived within an early 70s daydream of decadence, glamour, and self-indulgence. It’s about false identities — how money helps us create illusions that affect how others perceive us, and how we perceive ourselves. Inspired by Roxy Music, David Bowie, and the lethargic boredom that remains when ambition is thwarted by apathy.”
Tune in now.
