There are lots of okay bands about, doing there own little thing, not really bothering anyone. The ones that get interest are the ones doing something interesting and different, something to break from the mould of everything that you’ve heard before. in their previous life as Elmo Logic, patterns didn’t really do much to set themselves apart from the crowd, producing a series of well meaning if lukewarm p-op songs. One re-brand later and it seems like the band might finally be fulfilling some of the potential that they’ve been hiding away for so long.
From frustrating fumbles with guitars to this – a wonderful, Mew-esque slice of electronica, like if Delphic had decided to do something a little more interesting with Acolyte. Majestic, languid and utterly masterful in it’s delivery, the band pump out Wrong Two Words like they’ve spent their career making synth pop for weirdos. Part of the first ever release on seminal Manchester ‘zine Pull Yourself Together’s foray into being a label, it’s a pretty impressive statement to break your duck with.
