PATTERN LANGUAGE

PRESS / RADIO COVERAGE

Pattern Language debuts on London’s Happy Robots Records with 'Total Squaresville' Mini-Album. Pattern Language is the new project of Chris Frain from Boulder, Colorado. 

 

With nods to krautrock legends like Kraftwerk, Harmonia, and La Dusseldorf, the tracks found on ‘Total Squaresville’ showcase Frain drawing heavily on influences from his childhood, including The Art of Noise, Eurythmics, Thomas Dolby, and the 1980s iteration of King Crimson. Particularly noteworthy is the use of pre-Roland 808 sounds for the drum machine parts, placing this version of synthwave closer to the late 1970s than the mid-to-late 1980s sound currently dominating the synth scene.

The album will be available on 16 June via digital download on all major platforms. Distributed by Cargo Records.
