The debut album from The Pattern Forms, a collaborative project between Ed Macfarlane and Edd Gibson of Friendly Fires and Jon Brooks of The Advisory Circle, is due out 21st October
Following on from the Other Voices 03 single in 2015, this is an album that perfectly melds blissful pop with more exploratory electronics, its roots lying in the artists’ shared love of soundtracks and electronic library music of the 70s and 80s. It should appeal to fans of both bands.
On DL, CD, and heavyweight LP, with luxurious packaging designed by Julian House. There’ll also be a special coloured vinyl version exclusive to Rough Trade Records. Pre-orders will open early October.
