In The Spotlight

Patternist – “I Don’t Feel Real”

Developed in the bedroom studio of songwriter and producer Gabe Mouer, the sound that goes hand in hand with his moniker is a construct of rhythm, percussion and lush pop arrangements to accompany hard-hitting lyrics covering topics from mental illness to drug-fueled hallucinations. He toured with artists like The Griswolds and Flor and debuted with his EP “Youth Is Fading” in 2014.

In preparation of releasing his debut full-length album “I Don’t Know What I’m Doing Here” on September 6, his latest single binds deep, existential lyrical narration with an easygoing, summery melodic ambience. Layered with a bouncy beat, sunshiny synths and airy guitar strums, the contemporary indie-pop sound gives it an upbeat pulse and with his boyish vocal tone, this jam is as real as it gets.
