Patawawa – The Heat (Soundplate Records)
|Patawawa - The Heat|
Release Date: 30th September 2016
Oh I do like Patawawa, I really do. From their gorgeous name to the fact that they create such delightful musical nuggets out of the relatively baron creative wastelands of Matlock, they’re just a delightful prospect. New single ‘The Heat’ is just another reason to fall in love with this trio with its bouncy guitars, funky beats and relaxed yet edgy vocals. Melodies scatter all over the place and bounce off walls leaving you feeling like you need to see a video with some impossibly young folk riding around on scooters in some neon drenched sun spot in the Med. There’s a B-Side too (another reason to love them) by the name ‘Kut Drop’ and this has an altogether more soulful feel that wouldn’t be out of place in the late 90s. Patawawa have that knack for infectious disco pop that the likes of Daft Punk and Pharrell Williams have made millions from yet they’re still hanging out in Derbyshire. It’s only a matter of time….
