Talk about buses; Manchester waits for an exciting new band then TWO come along at once!

Weds 7th Sept sees a bit of a special double-header with Patterns and Ghost Outfit playing on the same London bill at Old Blue Last. Great chance to kill two birds with one stone as they say – Patterns mix pop and shoegaze in the vein of My Bloody Valentine or Teardrop Explodes meets Deerhunter or Panda Bear. The debut single ‘Induction’ is released on Melodic 3rd October. Pre-order page here:

Ghost Outfit are a duo who’ve been causing quite a stir with their schizo-fi noise meets emotionally driven pop a la an all-boy White Stripes meets Throbbing Gristle – and fittingly, debut single ‘Tuesday / I Want Someone Else’ is released on Halloween 31st October on Sways.
