Praise for Anorak Patch: “The Colchester quartet’s first offering for tastemaker label Nice Swan stands up as a vital, visceral cut from a band of any demographic.” - DIY "Anorak Patch are unquestionably an alternative godsend” - So Young “[‘Delilah] 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
Debut EP By Cousin Sam from Anorak Patch is out today, and it’s about nothing in particular, with tracks that are bold, pretty, and influenced by repetition. It comes from Nice Swan Records that have worked with some of the UK’s hottest new acts including Sports Team, English Teacher, Silverbacks, FUR, Courting, Malady, and more.
It’ll include singles ‘Irate’ (here), ‘Blue Jeans’ (here), ‘Delilah’ (here), ‘Cousin Sam’ (here), and latest tack 'Paris Will Be Paid For' (here) - further proof of why Anorak Patch are one of the UK’s most exciting bands to emerge in recent times, with The Sunday Times calling ‘Delilah’ “one of the best singles of the year”.

Speaking of their debut, guitarist Oscar Ryland said, "The EP is a new direction for us musically. it has more extremes, some parts of songs can be very intense and others can be slow and calming, hopefully listeners like it. The running order of the ep is important - we think it adds to the overall experience. it starts and ends with two powerful and emotional songs and in the middle is something lighter and more accessible...it's full of twists."
Anorak Patch are: Effie Lawrence, Vocals/Keyboards (17) Eleanor Helliwell, Bass (16) Oscar Ryland, Guitar (18) Luca Ryland, Drums/Vocals (15)
