Ravioli Me Away are a dangerously ambitious and delusional all girl jazzy post punk, hip funk outfit from London.
The drum patterns are rudimental and the keyboard tunes are repeated over and over, they aren’t about how complex the songs are, this is immediate and in your face. A true Riot Grrl sensibility. They use samples of David Cameron to illustrate what is wrong and where they stand. More often than not the lyrics are shouted and screamed out rather than just sung. Voices are used as instruments and sounds are slammed together to make things work.
But then, just as you are getting sucked into the weird, off kilter world of Ravioli Me Away they produce the final two songs on the album which are so at odds with the rest that it’s almost as if they thought they should do something different. ‘Euro Breakdown’ has a classic electro sound, polished and catchy. While ‘Scooby Loop’ gives you dubby bass, weird little sounds underneath and a fantastic groove.
