(Los Angeles, CA) – October 13, 2015
The Musebox today announced the release of “Dizzy,” the new single from soulful indie electro-popper Patternist, the innovative project created by Portlander Gabe Mouer. The single is described by Idolator: “Patternist’s lithe bedroom pop is given a tropical touch here with some Afro-pop guitars and marimba, and the song eventually blossoms with a percussive breakdown that’s equal parts twinkling and rumbling.”
Having already opened for The Ataris and Train, the young songwriter Mouer has a decidedly 80’s vibe. According to Emily Beiser of KAMP Radio, Patternist’s 2014 debut EP, Youth is Fading, “is full of catchy songs and wistful lyrics…does an excellent job of blending nostalgia and uplifting beats…” More information on Patternist is available @ www.patternistmusic.com.
Patternist’s most recent singles “Gone” and “New Fashion” were recently added to Spotify’s “Fresh Finds”
Released in late 2014, Youth is Fading spent several weeks in The CMJ Top 200 and generated buzz among worldwide bloggers, critics, and industry insiders. Patternist has also licensed music to several television shows and companies, including Keeping Up with the Kardashians, MTV’s Real World, and Discovery Networks.
“There’s a resolutely 80s vibe to the music…This is a potential soundtrack to getting ready for going out, even where the lyrical content is bittersweet before its years…” Backseat Mafia
Patternist bursts with a blend of rhythmic synths, heart-thumping percussions, and lush arrangements that work in conjunction to support songwriter Mouer’s smooth tenor and thoughtful lyrics. Even the Patternist moniker is proof of Mouer’s creativity and unparallelled willingness to dive deeper:
“I was inspired by an idea that I love from psychology that theorizes that the brain has evolved a tendency to see meaningful, intentional patterns even where they might not exist. Examples of this include the face on Mars, subliminal messages when you play a record backwards, and divine signs on burnt toast. I then created a word around this theory.”
In March 2015, Mouer reentered the studio to record his second EP as Patternist, set to be released in monthly installments starting May 29. He will begin regional tours of the United States at the end of 2015.
