Patio Drop new single “En Plein Air”
Patio, are back to share their first new track since April of 2019, “En Plein Air”, the single was produced by Nate Amos of Water From Your Eyes.
Patio, arrived in the 2010s in New York, the band have played shows with Pile, Dry Cleaning Dehd, and more. The band includes bassist-vocalist Loren DiBlasi, guitarist-vocalist Lindsey-Paige “LP” McCloy, and drummer Alice Suh — had immense momentum going into 2020, following the 2019 release of their debut full-length Essentials, via Fire Talk Records (Mandy, Indiana, Cola, Strange Ranger).
“En Plein Air” — meaning “in the open air,” the process of painting outdoors — presents Patio at their most liberated and collaborative, creating their own good time at a moment when New York was anything but. The song was crafted in the spring of 2021, and saw several different iterations until an idea to channel the ecstatic emotions of disco (Donna Summer, The Bee Gees) helped it reach its final form.
According to the band, “En Plein Air” describes “winning a fight, for once, but by proxy — finding the right thing to say, but five years too late.” Vulnerable yet savage, the song is both a playful wink and a decisive confrontation, with McCloy’s luminous guitar floating in, out, and around the deconstructed disco grooves of DiBlasi and Alice Suh.
