Patio Release Boy Scout
As soon as I put on this new track from Patio, I couldn’t help but think back to one of my favorite acts of the 00s, No Shouts, No Calls from Electrelane. Now, New York’s Patio have a bit more of a casual indifference in their vocal delivery, but you can still hear touches of sharp post-punk hooks and bouncing rhythms that grab listeners and spin them around. For a band with just one EP under their belt, this single strikes you as a fully formed outfit ready to take over your listening habits. Might just be the most exciting bunch I’ve heard in weeks; look for their debut LP, Essentials, out April 5th via Fire Talk Records.
