Patterns - Waking Lines album
Patterns (English band). You were awake And I was in bed Five in the morn You were awake And I was in bed Five in the morn No place for my eyes And you were a voice All sung out of tune I wasn’t you No, I wasn’t you. And I was away All lost in my mind And that wasn’t fair That only gods would ever mind And you were a sin All gone are your eyelids I’ll follow you Oh, I’ll follow you.
Ensuring 2014 gets off to a shimmering start, Manchester spectral pop specialists Patterns release their debut album ‘Waking Lines’ on January 6 via Melodic. You don’t have to wait till then to enjoy its shoegazey synths, electronic loops and gauzy ambient chill though, as we’ve got an exclusive stream of the record below. It’s like those weird dreams that feel familiar but alien at the same time, frontman Ciaran McAuley says of ‘Waking Lines’ – a dream you’ll be in no rush to wake from.
It’s often easy – too easy, perhaps – to pinpoint a band’s influences. Patterns blend the avant garde approach Animal Collective and Deerhunter with the commercialism of Bastille (although they’d probably deny it), but the Mancunian quartet have crafted an album that’s largely durable and occasionally even uplifting. The celebratory bursts of melody and electronics on Blood and Street Fires drum up vibrant enthusiasm and keep it a priority throughout. The comparatively drab indie band chug of Induction sees Patterns temporarily lose their drive, but it’s a minor blip on an album that is creative in the face of imitativeness. com Download: Waking Lines, Street Fires.

Manchester band Patterns have chosen to release Waking Lines, their début album, in the first week of the year. I hope they don't get overlooked along the way as this album is an intriguing collection of hooky experimental dream/drone pop. The minimalist blurb I could find on them tends to convey a very serious erstwhile collective with a penchant for the technical, when it comes to creating sounds. The production quality for Waking Lines is exceptional and is ably backed up by some great melodies and playing. Although there's no mention of influences (a good thing as often bands get it terribly wrong), I hear echoes of Sigur Ros in the vocal stylings. Patterns are essentially making (good) pop music here and the experimental yearnings of Yeasayer are evident to these ears, as well as the expansive sounds of The Big Pink.
