Pull Yourself Together are over the moon to announce that we are starting a record label! We’ve been talking about it for ages, and then the opportunity to release an EP by one of our favourite new bands came up. We could hardly say no could we! So, we are pleased to present -
Patterns – New Noise EP
Patterns rich electronic tones and rain-soaked guitars shift from foreboding gloom to uplifting light, building into composites of atmospheric electronics and post-punk. Over the course of this year Patterns have built their live reputation playing with Allo Darlin’ and Here We Go Magic at the Postcards From Manchester Festival, supporting The Strange Death of Liberal England and two absolutely packed shows at this year’s In The City convention. Such was the demand to see the band at their In The City show at Common that members of the ITC planning team couldn’t even get into the venue.
The tracks on the New Noise EP are:
1. Broken trains
2. Wrong two words
3. Loop track
4. Fly to New York
With echoes of The Chameleons, Animal Collective and Deerhunter, Patterns are producing music that sounds momentous, with “Wrong two words” a prime example, combining thick layers of electronics with fuzzy guitars to create a hypnotic slice of dream-pop. Similarly EP opener “Broken trains” fuses bell samples and ethereal harmonies with rumbling bass drones to create an epic wintery pop song. The tracks collected here are intimate home recordings from the last few months and explore the band’s preoccupation with shoegaze and ambient electronica.
Don’t just take our word for it. The fine folks at manchestermusic.co.uk said – “Back at that Strange Death gig we rather rashly proclaimed them Manchester’s next great guitar band – but three months down the line have no reason to revise that opinion.
The EP is released on Monday 13th December, and will be available on this website as a free download.
New Noise EP is also going to be available as a very very limited edition CD, which you can pre-order for only £2.50 now by clicking the button below -
