Patternist – I Don’t Feel Real (Review)

Fronted by Gabe Mouer, Patternist is a collective that blends percussive rhythms, angelic arrangements alongside blissful lyrics. Set to release their debut album β€œI Don’t Know What I’m Doing Here” September 6th via InVogue Records, β€œI Don’t Feel Real” is a segment into what the album will sound like. A visionary soundscape of what was actually a first step into Gabe’s new songwriting approach. Diving into a more β€˜narrative’ world, the new single felt like the answers after a dealing with a loss of identity as a songwriter. Finding his feet firmly back on the grow, the latest number has already received over 280,000 streams since it’s July 26th release.

A descriptive story about someone winding up in hospital after an emotional breakdown, the track hits close to home. Bringing in a personal approach to songwriting too, there’s a lot of hope within the number. Meant to not be a 3 minute track on sadness, the song features a lot of motivation to become the best version of yourself. With it’s highly energetic arrangement, what began as a self destructive story, came to a close with finding reality. As for the video, it’s slightly outrageous and bizarre but fits the story of the number perfectly. A fantastic track from an artist who’s aiming for the stars.Β 

Score: 3.5/5
