​Review: Here We Go! by Pattern Pusher

Words by: Verity Hesketh

Pattern Pusher set the mood like Exeter’s biggest, most glittery mirrorball.  Carried by Ben Green’s spidery bassline, Here We Go! is as much a call to action as it is a shot of dazzling disco dopamine.  

Across the south-west, and throughout the UK, Pattern Pusher are liberally applying their self-styled crusade of happiness with abandon. Their exuberantly happy vibes need no diluting; they’re juicy enough as they are. These tunes say ‘party’ in a way that summer festival crowds will find hard to resist.

The band have released this new single bang on time for the start of summer, and it’s sure to get you boogying in the backseat: top down, sunnies on, ice-cream microphone at the ready. Fans of Franc Moody, Friendly Fires, and Cut Copy will be sure to enjoy this track for obvious reasons; classic indie fun is sprinkled throughout in glorious fistfuls. It’s a great respite from the hot and heavy electro-spiked chart sounds around at the moment.

Pattern Pusher lead you down a retro funk-indie road, swerving between both lanes, but managing to keep it all together. Production layers are built up expertly; from the sampled echoes of a crowd mingling, to the whirr of synthy keyboards and Alex Johnstone’s effortlessly blissful vocals, soaring above it all like the sun illuminating a distant beach.

The song-writing isn’t very complex. However, it doesn’t really need to be as this is a record purely designed to get you grooving. Right. Now. Strap in tight, crank it up, and don’t spill your ice-cream. 

‘Here We Go!’ is out now available on all streaming platforms.
