“Funk-laden grooves and dancefloor-filling beats” - DIY
Hailing from the quiet sleepy Derbyshire town of Matlock, Patawawa are a contemporary concoction of the sparkling synths and glittered guitar riffs popularised by Pet Shop Boys and Prince. Charismatic and cathartic in equal measure, Patawawa have stormed the indie DIY scene since their arrival in 2015 with their blood-pumping beats and biting bass lines. With a BBC 6Music TOTW and live session, soundtrack collaboration with Millie Bobby Brown’s new fashion brand and a viral Spotify hit with French producer Tez Cadey under their belts Patawawa are quietly establishing themselves as disco funk pioneers. New offering ‘Forget About It’ follows on in this vein, as Patawawa create a technicolour sonic landscape with cascading vocals and encompassing synths. ‘Forget About it’ is a hedonistic escape, it’s optimism and positivity has never been more needed.
