Women Make Music: Playing House

In March 2017, London three-piece Playing House will return with their brand new EP, ‘Jocelyn’. Storming into the indie sphere with their debut offering ‘New Haircut’, Playing House’s bold, playful art-pop saw them garner over 15,000 streams, downloads & views in 6 months alone plus the critical acclaim of The 405, Clash Magazine, Louder Than War & BBC 6’s Tom Robinson for their ‘potent introduction’ with the tastemaker naming Playing House as his ‘new favourite band’.

Their debut release also brought the band to the attention of Mercury Prize nominated producer Richard Formby (Wild Beasts, Ghostpoet) who took the art-pop trio to a secret location in Leeds to work on their follow up EP ‘Jocelyn’.

This concise release features 3 intelligent and refreshingly bold alt-pop earworms that explore the stages of love and longing, in frontwoman Mel Patman’s words ‘from coming out, to grief & therapy’ with the band pushing their sound even further exploring synth and programming under the wing of Formby. The band’s ability to write such contrasting bubble-gum pop to often brutally honest lyrics earn them their retrocentric comparisons such as Talking Heads, David Bowie and A Flock Of Seagulls.

‘Women Make Music’ has come at a crucial stage for a band developing at lightning speed and will support the band in the marketing and promotion of the ‘Jocelyn’ EP as well as enabling the band to head out on their second tour, this time with 10 dates across the UK.
