PATAWAWA, “Fight Me”
Yes, you read that headline correctly. Dance music sometimes disguises the toughest of emotions, so that we can let them all out and leave our blood on the dance floor, as Michael Jackson once sang. UK trio Patawawa subscribe to these sentiments in their latest song “Fight Me”, following up the 70’s funk-laced “Lie” and their EP Bedroom. Retaining the lo-fi production that highlights the bass work in a pretty raw form, “Fight Me” is also a showcase for Beth’s captivating vocal, as well as out-and-out disco inspiration that brings the zing back into those strings that recall so many records particularly out of the Salsoul and Philadelphia International labels of the 70’s. Patawawa’s hearts and minds are all in the right places and they keep you happily stuck dancing on the groove line with “Fight Me”.
