PATRÓN, the desert groove rock project fronted by Loading Data frontman Lo (aka PATRÓN), made their mark last month with the release of their self-titled debut album. In the run up to the release PATRÓN revealed a series of live sessions, the last ever to be recorded at Alain Johannes' legendary studio 11AD in Los Angeles where the band's album was produced. Featuring Nick Oliveri on bass, Joey Castillo on drums, Aurélien Barbolosi on guitar, Lo Patrón on vocals and electronics, and also Alain Johannes on guitar, we caught up with the frontman himself to find out more about the second single from the album, 'Who Do You Dance For?'.
PATRÓN, the new project of Lo, previously of Loading Data, is a curious melting pot of influences, from fifties rock ‘n’ roll to ‘80s synth pop. Carried by the instantaneously recogniseable vocals of Lo (aka PATRÓN himself), this band have their sound absolutely nailed, but are frequently let down by repetitive, and at times, uncomfortable lyrics.
