Patio Announce Debut Album 'Essentials', Share 'Boy Scout'
Fire Talk is excited to announce the debut record from NYC’s Patio. The band has shared the first single entitled "Boy Scout" listen below. "Essentials" is due out April 5th on Fire Talk Records. A gut shot, straight to the point and a perfect introduction to a record that doubles down and builds on Patio's signature blend of boredom, frustration, and mid-20s malaise. Pre order it now on CD, Digital or limited edition Smokey Clear vinyl.
Inspired by classic British post-punk, the songwriting of Cate LeBon, and the close-knit Brooklyn DIY community from which the band first sprouted, Patio now release their long-awaited debut full-length Essentials, a fundamental collection of new music for 2019. Building upon the delicacy of the band’s prior work, Essentials presents fuller sounds, heightened emotions, and grander thematic complexity. Its 10 tracks are dark and introspective, yet hopeful, and often humorous—from rambling spoken word meditations to sparkling melodies and soaring riffs. Melodramatic and grotesque expressions abound, as do soft, subtle moments of quiet self-examination. Mixed by Amar Lal (Big Ups, Ovlov) and mastered by Sarah Register (Protmartyr, US Girls)
