Ghost Patterns Formed in 2019, the band have quickly gathered attention in the shoegaze/psych scenes, including bagging London support slots with Desert Mountain Tribe tribe for the renowned London indie label AC30 and Helicon on the Fuzz Club label. Their single ‘Disappears’, obtained radio play on Amazing Radio/ The Reverb (UK) and on the Part Time Punks show on KXLU 88.9fm, Los Angeles, alongside the likes of Slowdive, Galaxie 500 and DIIV.
Elements of their influences can be traced back to late 60's psychedelia, the British 70’s-80’s independent post punk scene through to the 90's shoegaze/ U.S. alt rock scenes. Expect swathes of layered guitars and icy synth textures washed in reverb, juxtaposed with pounding bass lines and abrasive drums to round off the sonic palette. Their latest EP Oracle was released on June 5th 2020 and is available here: https://ghostpatterns.bandcamp.com/album/oracle-e-p https://www.facebook.com/ghostpatternsband/ https://www.ghostpatternsband.co.uk/ Their debut album is currently in progress and due for a release in September 2021.
