Exeter’s rising trio Pattern Pusher Come through with their first indie-disco infused single of 2019, ‘Take Your Own Way Home’. Co-written by one of their Dad’s (who I’m told is rather something of a songwriter with credits alongside the likes of Robert Plant and The Levellers), the new track is a statement of what is to be expected from these guys this year having already picked up high-praise for local BBC Introducing and string of releases last year.
‘Take Your Own Way Home’ is a funky little jam full of groove and upbeat melodies. Underneath its disco-synth exterior there are a heap of indie influences that flood through and even some hints of classic rock in there. It is really the 80s and 90s disco vibes that take this track from start to finish, the choruses feel just a little reminiscent of Bee Gees era dance tracks but with a decidedly more modern edge.
Speaking about the song the band explained “We mostly enjoy playing the dancier tracks at shows, there’s no better feeling than a crowd full of people jumping around to your music.” They continue “there’s a lot of pressure, doom and gloom in today’s society and we want to create and outlet for people to forget about it all. The lyrics normally encourage that escapism too.”
