Innovative musician Patchy has launched her debut album, “Illuminations”, capturing heartbreaking lyrics influenced by her urban surrounds, and combining them with simple layered electronic sounds to produce a real flavor of what a continental London could be.
“Illuminations” is an album of memories, it is an album of optimism for a future from which Patchy has learned from the good and the bad times. Artists like Goldfrapp, Robyn and La Roux may have blazed the trail, but Patchy takes up the baton with vigor with her debut record.
Produced in the Netherlands and Germany, and released on Manual Music, the first single from the album, Picnic, achieved great acclaim across the UK and Europe. Patchy has also performed extensively throughout Sweden, the Netherlands and Germany and is back on the road this summer, including a headlining slot at London’s extravaganza, Finnstock.
Patchy said of the album: “The songs on Illuminations span over a decade and cover some of the most fun and memorable times had. As well as being used as a way of venting and getting through the harder times.
“Tracks like Starting New and Happy Dark Spirit reflect partying with friends, the sun shining on long weekends and those morning walks home, hung over but contented, whereas Dreams and City describe bouts of anxiety and darker moments. Most of the tracks began on acoustic guitar and piano which I then developed using Reason and a synth.”
Patchy’s debut album showcases her ability to become a rising female electronic solo artist. You can download the album now from iTunes, or buy the CD and download it from Amazon from today.
