Hamish Anderson Debuts Video on Billboard

“‘My previous videos had been very story driven, so for this video I wanted to strip it all back to just what it feels like when we’re performing. I was influenced by imagery from the late 70s videos of The Rolling Stones (really from Some Girls/Emotional Rescue era) where it was them playing in NYC industrial warehouse-style environments. Super stark– and really all about the band performing. In general, we wanted to play more with lighting and movement overall. I got really lucky to work with a great team and we all felt that the energy and the vibe of the song was truly captured in the video.”

UK’s Pattern Pusher Release Energetic New Video For “Shakey”

Shakey is Pattern Pusher’s second single, following debut Lose Myself. Pattern Pusher like to make fun music, however Shakey was inspired by a not-so-fun night watching a terrible Bowie Tribute act (the type with a garageband backing track.) We ditched the gig, going home humming melodies and tapping out beats on our chests. Alex found lyrical inspiration in an old London friend, who rebelled against his strict Christian upbringing to live a hedonistic life of partying.

Pattern Pusher (Alex Johnstone – Vocalist/Keyboardist, Benjamin Conibear – Drummer, Ben Green Guitars/Synths) strive to achieve immersive music that breaks the boundaries between sight and sound. Electrifying visuals with synth melodies combined with an attention grabbing on-stage energy, no-one would guess the trio originated in little old Devon.
