[Audio] Patchy’s ‘Wild 1’

 

Patchy

Two years on from her début album, Illuminators, London based ElectroPop songstress Patchy is still releasing some of the most interesting SynthPop in the capital. She’s just served up this brand new tune, titled Wild 1, on her SoundCloud page. We hope the weather’s good where you are, this is one tune that deserves sunshine and good times.

Wild 1 hits the ground running with some magnificent lush chords that glide into Patchy’s voice, full of personality. Played out over a surprisingly gentle beat, layered with shuffling hats and reverb drenched claps, Wild 1 weaves a rich tapestry of ringing synths and growling tones. Patchy’s introspective performance ties the track together with a deeply personal mood. We’re hoping there’s lots more coming from Patchy.

Patchy

We served up London based new ElectroPop artist Patchy’s Picnic video earlier this year. Picnic was her début single, and she’s already unleashed a whole album of material on the world. Released this week, Illuminations runs the gauntlet of electronic music influences and them packages them all up in a sweet Pop parcel.

Dreams, the albums opened delivers on this perfectly, from it’s shuffling beats to it’s big post-Dubstep warbling, it’s all made accessible by Patchy’s quirky and inviting voice. The bubbling and infectious single Picnic gives way to the almost Kraftwerkian beats and electronic pulses of Brixtonia and the magical garden Dub of Solutions. By this point in the album you’re beginning to fall into Patchy’s groove. Truly ecclectic and interesting electronic music with a Pop sugar coating that it quite a refreshing combination. The vocals are sweet and catchy and slightly introverted in a way that makes them appealing, but the music shows off some really intricate programming and arrangement and draws on a myriad of underground styles. There are, of course, big Pop moments, such as the sweeping Happy Dark Spirit but as the album serves up it’s final third it’s all complex and atmospheric synths, robotics beats and vocals that get more and more brooding. The tension is broken though as the record plays out on Starting Now, a track that injects Patchy with a Disco swing and a catchy piano hook. It;s a confident début for this young artist, a name we’ll be keeping an eye on form now on.

[Video] Patchy’s ‘Picnic’

 

Here’s the début video from new London artist Patchy. It’s called Picnic and is a marvellously fun slice of cheeky ElectroPop. It’s got everything that intrigues us about a track, Fizzing Electro beats, synthetic bass, sparkling leads and Patchy’s slightly quirky vocals (and, as you, know we have a long history of loving quirky vocals!).

Check out the track via the video, which is various bits of Undergrounds (although not sure where) and Patchy mucking about in the studio. Which makes for a nice introduction to her and her music.

Check out more from Patchy on SoundCloud.

Picnic is out now, and is taken from Patchy’s début album, Illuminations, released 3rd June on Manual Music.
