‘Patawawa (yes you read it correctly!) are the latest act to team up with Dutch Boogie dons Kraak & Smaak for their burgeoning Boogie Angst imprint. Their bouncing new track ‘Wires’ will feature on the forthcoming Boogie Angst compilation ‘Edition Two’ and serve as the lead single ahead of the full collection’s release in December.
Hailing from the small town of Matlock in Derbyshire, they specialize in funky pop indie jams with more than a small sprinkling of disco. Think the catchiness and songcraft of Chic crossed with the cheekiness and instant likability of Chromeo and you’re in the right ballpark.
And this track follows that blueprint to a tee. Bringing the glittery goodness of yesteryear up to date with 2018. Lead singer – Beth Garrett’s vocal melodies glide effortlessly over a solid disco groove that transforms into a full-on festival of sound with punchy horns, samba vibes and of course a cowbell!
There’s more funk synths and fun packed into these four and a half minutes than an after-hours party at the Roland production factory! You can file this one under ‘guaranteed crowd pleaser’.
