The new song, Luxembourg is the first track off the band’s upcoming EP Quotations, and I think it’s rad.
With a sound that’s well beyond their years, one of my favourite Newcastle bands The Patriots are back from the studio with a bunch of new songs. The first release is a sneak peak at what to expect when the EP drops later this year and I think we’re all in for a real treat.
Geyer’s guitar sound and style just gets better and better each time I hear it. It’s layered, funky and interesting. While Luxembourg is not totally removed from the indie pop sound that The Patriots forged during the recording of the No Means Yes EP, this song represents a maturing and further experimentation.
The band packs a lot into this 3 minute single with a sound that fans of the French indie outfit Phoenix will find both familiar and exciting.
