Patten have been performing and releasing music on ultra-limited edition CDRs since 2006, whilst also running their imprint Kaleidoscope. Following a series of increasingly intense live performances, billed alongside artists as varied as Thurston Moore, DJ Spooky, Cosey Fanni Tutti, Leafcutter John, Caribou, and JD Samson, the first official patten LP GLAQJO XAACSSO was released in September 2011 through boutique UK label, No Pain in Pop to widespread acclaim.
Patten’s subtle song structures develop between steeply flanked crystal-like sounds. Distinctive perplexities envelop the sharp-edged romance of the songs, the minimal arrangements avoid the usual retro-traps. [https://soundcloud.com/patttten]
