Retro pop trio Pattern Pusher return with the new single “Happy Place” comes hot on the heels of singles “Come Along” and “Find The Light” which were released to critical acclaim this Spring ahead of the band’s forthcoming album, written and recorded during lockdown and due for release early next year.
Pattern Pusher are fronted by Alex Johnstone on the keys, whose soaring soulful vocals are evocative of Donny Hathaway, Ray Charles and Mick Hucknall, Benny G gives his wild energy to the bass and Benny C’s grooving drum rhythms underpin an unconventional line up with a classic sound. Their crusade of happiness has earned them a loyal and fast-growing fan base, accolades from BBC Radio 6, continued support from BBC Introducing, and a string of festival shows; now lining up on the same bills as their idols.
In Alex’s own words – “Happy Place is a story of getting lost in your favourite place, even if only in your head. It was written on a morning when I was beating myself up for not having my life sorted. I was feeling down but then I remembered the good times, took myself to my happy places, good memories. There are always things I love where I can escape to and I hope it will encourage others to do the same and no matter how dark things seem, try to focus on the positive things in life.”
The band’s impressive forthcoming album is a collaboration of their musical prowess and a nod to the classic artists they so admire. Inspired by the vintage approach of 60s and 70s classic song writing it draws influence from the likes of The Rolling Stones, Jamiroquai and Primal Scream and is already attracting significant industry attention.
