Pattern Pusher release retro-pop banger ahead of Autumn UK tour

Release Date: 10/09/21

Words: Dan Smith

The Exeter based trio have released retro-pop banger ‘Happy Place’ and believe me, it is hard not to be in a happy place with this blasting through your earphones. Cited as one of NME’s ‘Hidden Gems’, it is conpletely understandable when you have a listen to the funky hit.

Written with the whole intention of throwing your mind into summer, the song vibes with 60’s/70’s inspired funk riffs mixed with modern synths whildn’t wouldn’t be amis in a Bruno Mars classic.

Happy Place is a story of getting lost in your favourite place, even if only in your head.  It was written on a morning when I was beating myself up for not having my life sorted.  I was feeling down but then I remembered the good times, took myself to my happy places, good memories.  There are always things I love where I can escape to and I hope it will encourage others to do the same and no matter how dark things seem, try to focus on the positive things in life.”

The vocals throughout are excellent, blending in perfectly with delicate keys and a drum beat you can’t help but nod your head too. Ultimately, I found myself wanting to get up and have a boogey whilst hitting repeat over and over again. It’s no secret that the old-school, pop vibes are making a comeback and are one of my guilty pleasures. I have a 2 hour train journey tomorrow, and coming in at just under 3 minutes long I’ll get a good 20 listens out of ‘Happy Place’ and I will not regret it!

The song was released in early September ahead of the trio’s UK tour which is sure to go off!

You can stream the groovy banger below, but be prepared to two-step across the living room floor!
