Patio formed four years ago when non-musician Loren DiBlasi met actual musician Lindsey-Paige McCloy, and a joke about outdoor day drinking turned into a real-life band. The duo was soon joined by Alice Suh, a college friend of McCloy’s who had recently started drum lessons. Inspired by classic British post-punk, the songwriting of Cate LeBon, and the close-knit Brooklyn DIY community from which the band first sprouted, Patio released their long-awaited debut full-length 'Essentials' in April 2019 via Fire Talk Records.
