PATSY are a New Orleans band who make fast, slashing, catchy-as-hell punk rock. The band is led by one Candice, also a member of the band Mystic Inane, and their schoolyard-taunt snarl is one of the coolest things we’ve ever heard. After a series of excellent singles over the past couple of years, the band recently released their debut ‘mini’-LP ‘LA Women’ (La Vida Es Un Mus Discos), which you can stream below. Where prior singles tended to stay firmly in the hardcore lane, ‘LA Women’ finds Patsy blending an inspired mix of surf, garage, 80s hardcore, skewed 80s new wave, and garage. Their straight ahead hardcore jams – including a re-recorded version of “Nazis are so Plain” from their 2015 demo – bear a slippery quality that reminds of DKs, particularly in the woozy guitar work (see, in particular, album highlight “Society Ape”). Elsewhere, tracks like the excellent “Heathen” and opener “Count it Down” bristle with a-go-go worthy garage energy. This will be the band’s first time in London on their debut European tour!
