Colchester-based four piece Anorak Patch are one the UK’s most exciting, young bands to emerge in recent times. Keyboardist Effie Lawrence formed the group in late 2019 with high school friends Luca Ryland (drums) & brother Oscar (guitar), along with bass player Eleanor Helliwell.
The band have been quick to announce themselves into the UK music scene with airplay and press, having made national news when their debut the single was added to the BBC 6 Music Playlist. The band signed to tastemaker label Nice Swan in 2021, with recent singles 'Irate' ‘Delilah’ and 'Blue Jeans' gaining extensive support from the likes of BBC Radio 1, Spotify, Radio X and DIY Magazine.
They were named by both The Times and The Independent as ‘Artists of 2022’.
