Patch and the Giant


‘Tucked somewhere between the music of Balkan enthusiasts Beirut and the rustic elegance of modern DIY folk’ (Folk Radio UK) – London-based Patch & The Giant are an enigmatic indie-folk band with geographical and musical roots from throughout the UK. With a core sound built around the union of vocals with violin, accordion, cello, flugelhorn and more, they together craft a sound which is ‘wholly immersing’ (Brum Notes Magazine) and a live presence described as ‘jubilant’ (For Folk’s Sake).

‘Tucked somewhere between the music of Balkan enthusiasts Beirut and the rustic elegance of modern DIY folk’ (Folk Radio UK) – London-based Patch & The Giant are an enigmatic indie-folk band with geographical and musical roots from throughout the UK. With a core sound built around the union of vocals with violin, accordion, cello, flugelhorn and more, they together craft a sound which is ‘wholly immersing’ (Brum Notes Magazine) and a live presence described as ‘jubilant’ (For Folk’s Sake). After forming in late 2011, they sold out their first ever full band show (at London’s Camden Barfly) and in 2013, Time Out magazine featured the band as one of the defining acts of the London scene. Fresh from a successful string of regional headline tour dates, they have also toured the UK with Keston Cobblers’ Club and recorded a live video session for ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris so far this year. They made their festival debut in 2012 at Festibelly, on the same line-up as acts including Bastille and We Were Evergreen and, having spent the latter part of 2013 touring the festival circuit (including Green Man, LeeFest, Standon Calling and London FolkFest ) they return this summer to make their debut at Cambridge Folk Festival in addition to Lyme Folk Weekend, Hop Farm, Larmer Tree, Wilderness and Green Man festivals. They released their debut record The Boatswain’s Refuge EP in May 2013.

Produced by BBC Folk Award nominee Ben Walker and recorded at the historic Crypt Studios in north London, the EP was released via Folkroom Records and radio highlights include BBC Radio 2 amongst others. They were also asked to record a song for For Folk’s Sake’s annual Christmas compilation in 2013 and their version of God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen was championed by both BBC Radio 6 and Amazing Radio. "One of, if not the single most promising folk act to emerge so far this decade." (7BitArcade) "Beautifully mellifluous" (Genevieve Tudor, BBC) "Utterly impossible not to sing, stamp, clap along" (Sofar Sounds) Read more on Last.fm.
