The one time Brooklyn underground darlings, and now New York, LA and Berlin-based trio Patio are preparing to embark on a new era. Having cut their teeth in the thriving 2010s DIY scene in New York, and building up considerable hype while playing with people like Pile, Dry Cleaning and Dehd, the band established their signature brand of precise, minimal post-punk with 2016’s Luxury EP. The group — bassist-vocalist Loren DiBlasi, guitarist-vocalist Lindsey-Paige "LP" McCloy, and drummer Alice Suh — had immense momentum going into 2020, following the 2019 release of their debut full-length Essentials on Fire Talk Records (Mandy, Indiana, Cola, Strange Ranger), which earned praise from Pitchfork, NPR Music, Stereogum, Rolling Stone, BBC, and many more. In early 2021, the longtime New Yorkers began to escape the city for monthly practice retreats in the bucolic Hudson Valley to work on a collection of new music that would become the group's most elegant, concise, and cohesive songs to date.

Today, the band are back to share their first new track since April of 2019, "En Plein Air", which was produced by Nate Amos of Matador-signees Water From Your Eyes.

“En Plein Air” — meaning “in the open air,” the process of painting outdoors — presents Patio at their most liberated and collaborative, creating their own good time at a moment when New York was anything but. The song was crafted in the spring of 2021, and saw several different iterations until an idea to channel the ecstatic emotions of disco (Donna Summer, The Bee Gees) helped it reach its final form.

According to the band, “En Plein Air” describes “winning a fight, for once, but by proxy — finding the right thing to say, but five years too late.” Vulnerable yet savage, the song is both a playful wink and a decisive confrontation, with McCloy’s luminous guitar floating in, out, and around the deconstructed disco grooves of DiBlasi and Alice Suh.
