Hotly tipped by the likes of NME, Line of Best Fit, DIY & Clash and many more, Patawawa have topped the Hype Machine charts several times during the last few months.
Clocking up several million streams across all digital platforms, they’ve earned support from the likes of Tom Robinson and Lauren Laverne on BBC 6 Music & plays on Radio 1 with Huw Stephens.
Patawawa have already had a busy first festival season, going down a storm at some of the summer’s biggest events such as Bestival & Tramlines.
Having earned comparisons to a bewildering array of other artists from Chic to Madonna, Two Door Cinema Club to Foals, Beth, Rory and Sam have spent 2018 so far refining & defining their own sound via a slew of releases & collaborations and in the process cementing their position as one of the most exciting new acts around in 2018.
They will be releasing a new track Wires around the upcoming tour with a second full EP that will be dropping end of November through January.
The kind of band that can look at the reflections of car lights in the puddles of a provincial English town high street & instead see the bright lights of Downtown Manhattan, Patawawa’s music provides both a commentary on and escape from a world that more often than not seems to be spinning out of control.
Join them as they head out on their first major UK tour!
Essex based working class indie 3-piece Bilk release debut single Give Up, produced by Rich Turvey (Blossoms, The Coral) at Parr Street Studios, Liverpool.
Having all just turned 18 years of age Bilk write honest songs about the world they live in and the things they go through as teenagers living in modern suburban Britain.
Lead singer Sol Abrahams says the track is about: “The idea of not giving up your aim when you’ve got your surroundings and other things going on in life distracting you. Hence the ‘trying not to flop my college course and then get employed” bit”. The name Bilk was inspired by Sol’s Dad who is a London cabbie. Sol says: “Getting ‘bilked’ is slang for when a cabbie (has a customer that runs off without paying the fare…”
With influences ranging from The Jam, The Streets and Arctic Monkeys through to Eminem and Dizzee Rascal, Bilk are a young Indie band inspired by the authentic attitude and message in hip hop and grime.
They will also be supported by Neon Salmon. The gig will be held at The Fulford Arms on Friday 5th October.
