Matthew & Me: “Patterns”
Following the Golden Charms EP from earlier this year, British quintet Matthew & Me are back with a new single, “Patterns.” The track finds the alternative pop group moving in darker textures than their earlier material. Syncopated guitar plucking and light drums drive the song, but Matthew Board’s ethereal vocals float on top to give “Patterns” its distinct character. With elastic melodies and enigmatic lyrics, Board creates a sound all of his own. Atmospheric production filled with reverbed guitars and clever touches of synths round out the track, and the wandering structure adds an exciting element to the song. The last minute rambles on instrumentally, building to an ecstatic climax.
“Patterns” will be available November 10, but be sure to check out the Golden Charms EP now.
