Beth, Rory and Sam comprise UK trio Patawawa, who impressed earlier this year with the grand retro-disco vibes of “Patagonia” from their EP Bedroom. They’ve followed up the EP with an appearance in Cookie Records’ Crispy Groove Compilation EP with “Lie”. This song draws perhaps more on inspiration from Parliament-Funkadelic and Rick James than CHIC this time, with its deep bass synths creating a deliciously contagious funky rhythm. The trio has everything going for it to stand out in the busy dance music scene, but I think would benefit of better-rounded production to make their music pop even more. But, no lie, “Lie” is a heckuva lot of fun and should attract more fans to Patawawa’s diverse sounds. Add “Lie” to your “It Is Time To Get Funky” playlist using the Spotify link below.
