Pathos Pathos are the bright summery fix we all need now!
When I think of Orlando basketball, people dressed in animal costumes, sea creatures kept in captivity and Rodney King comes to mind. Now there is another, and more positive, imagine in my minds eyes. Pathos Pathos.
Sounding like Freelance Whales covering the Spinto Band while Vampire Weekend produce, or it that the other way round, Pathos Pathos make the kind of indie pop that gives you a feeling that you want to jump around like a child not caring what others think of you, whilst giving you optimism. A rare trait in these bleak times.
As their name suggest this is all done in a way that makes us, the audience, believe their stories by creating emotional response. The music skitters and sways along, sometimes math motifs appear only to be repressed by an indie exuberance. The star of the show however are frontman Matt Walsh’s vocals. They float about, around and through Summer Nights, giving it an effervescent sheen.
The Pet Names EP is released 8th July
