New Music: Patawawa - Patagonia

It’s time to put on your glittery hot pants, boob tube, platforms and grab your hand bag (for dancing round) as you head to the disco with Patawawa; a trio from Matlock, Derbyshire, UK who make groovy electronic indie funk. Consisting of Rory Lovatt, Sam Wilmot and Beth Garrett this three piece have been doing the rounds for a number of years now, but it’s new track Patagonia that is really spreading the funky fever.

When we hear the expression ‘bedroom pop’ it's normal to think of some sort of lonely DIY indie artist producing laptop based electronic dance music or lo-fi fuzzy indie rock. Yet Patawawa are also bedroom musicians. So much so that the debut EP from which Patagonia is taken is titled Bedroom in tribute to the place where the songs were written and recorded.

Patagonia might have been created at home in a provincial English town but it sounds like it would have been more at home in the famous Studio 54 club, New York City. Now, who's coming for a dance then?
