United by an unbridled love for their craft and imbued with the finest coffee they can get their hands on, Pattern Pusher strive to create music that is as perfect as it is unorthodox. Now thanks to the release of debut single ‘Layla and Madman,’ their vision has taken on a much more tangible form, and it’s extremely impressive.
The Exeter-based quartet originally met at a jam night hosted by Alex (lead vox/keys). Initially sounding a little too “classic rock” they decided to introduce more electronic elements, which led to the Pattern Pusher we hear today.
You’ll often find them embroiled in conversation about theory, rhythm and everything in between, yet their aim is never to create something indulgent but instead something that people can dance and sing along too. With lashings of Alt-J, sprinkles of Tame Impala and a dash of Yeasayer it’s hard to argue that they’ve not achieved their goal.
After appearing on BBC Introducing and What’s A Pixel, as well as a long weekend in the studio with John Cornfield (Muse, Oasis, Supergrass), Pattern Pusher seem bent on seducing the world.
If there’s one song you should listen to this week, it’s ‘Layla and Madman’. Better yet, watch the wonderful video that incorporates the 1946 Orson Welles classic ‘The Stranger’ right here:
Pattern Pusher will be supporting Tiny Folds at The Cavern, Exeter on 14th May.
