Patrons – The Momentary Effects Of Sunlight

featureI listen to a LOT of music. Anyone that knows me would think I have heard it all. But every now and then I find a band that I can’t place into a box; a band that skirts around classification, but is a medley of all the right rhythms, melodies, transitions, and vocals that morph into something that is unique and quite brilliant.

Today, that band is Patrons. Formed in 2013, this Plymouth, UK-based four-piece band, have just released their new EP, The Momentary Effects Of Sunlight. The first thing  you might do after listening to this EP (a follow-up to their self-titled debut EP) is question how a band who has been together for just two years has put together a flawless four track EP like this. All I know is I want a full album, and I want it NOW.

While each song has it’s own identity, Patrons has a way of merging melody and chaos in all four tracks. It’s extremely difficult for me to pick a favorite off of this EP. Give it a listen and judge for yourself. I think you’ll be impressed.

Am I so lost / Or simply forgotten / The way I once was / Curse or a blessing
– “Lost Age”

No. You’re far from forgotten, Patrons. You’re going to be remembered for a long, long time. I have a feeling that this is just the beginning.
