Anorak Patch | By Cousin Sam
“[‘Delilah’ is] one of the best singles of the year: its combination of urgency, dissonance, vocal phrasing, lyrical empathy and a formidable rhythm section add up to something that’s incredibly powerful and instantly addictive.” - The Sunday Times (Breaking Act)
“Anorak Patch and fellow female-fronted acts such as Wet Leg are here to shake up the male dominated post-punk scene” - The Independent
Aged between just 15 and 18, Anorak Patch have been quick to grab the attention of tastemakers across the UK, and now they finally announce their debut EP, ‘By Cousin Sam’, released via Nice Swan Records.
‘Cousin Sam’ is about burying your cousin at a funeral - a bleak topic that isn’t a reference to anything, set to an almost psych slow tempo with haunting vocals that end up erupting together.Effie’s vocals have been compared to that of The Pretenders, Blondie and even early Bloc Party.
