Tinkering away in his bedroom studio, songwriter/producer Gabe Mouer aka Patternist, has lofty ambitions; package nuanced human stories into concise, three-and-a-half minute pop songs. Flowing from romantic pinings to troubled ruminations on mental illness to stories of drug-addled hallucinations and the brevity of life, Mouer’s introspective lyrical stylings contrast the slick guitars, rhythmic synths, & danceable beats that make up Patternist’s sound. Dubbed “blithe bedroom pop,” by Idolator, Patternist has been releasing songs since 2015 beginning with his self-produced debut EP Youth is Fading. The EP, which spent several weeks atop CMJ’s Top 200, was quickly followed by a string of singles garnering support from outlets such as The Huffington Post, PopMatters, and Idolator, in addition to several Spotify-curated playlists including Fresh Finds, Indie Rock All-stars, and Discover the Unknown. After a year of touring that included sold out dates across the US with artists like Vinyl Theatre, Finish Ticket, Flor, & The Griswolds, Patternist released his followup EP, Give It Up, in December of 2016, its title track appearing on Spotify’s US Viral Hits. Always reaching, Patternist is aiming to expand on the narrative elements of his songs in a collection of new music planned for summer 2017 with more touring to follow.

 

PRESS 

"...Patternist taps right into the very core of gorgeous, sonic dramatic
tension."
 – Baeble

"'Give It Up' is a pristine synth-pop tune. So much so that it's
hard to believe the Portland artist's latest was recorded entirely
in his apartment. It's an irresistible song..."
– All Things Go

"Graceful vocals alongside a delicate blue mist of synths and
guitars -- it's like The 1975 but good."
– Idolator

"...shamelessly wide-eyed. Irresistibly so." – PopMatters

"...an upbeat romantic slice of synth-pop that you want to hear
about halfway into your night out on the town, just as the buzz
hits the brain...Mouer has a good sense of how to arrange a
tune and promises to be a pop phenomenon."
– Portland Tribune

"All of the elements that have made these bands household names
are there; the joyous overtones, the breezy guitar riffs &
juvenile-yet-smart lyrics scream monster hit. The influences are
clear, but Patternist is no carbon copy." 
– Trendio
