Peel Away the Ivy, out today


Peel Away the Ivy by the Pattern Forms is out now on LP, CD and download.

Peel Away the Ivy

There’s also a limited edition green vinyl version exclusive to Rough Trade, with a special in-store performance by The Pattern Forms in Rough Trade East tonight, 21st October, at 6:00pm.

The Pattern Forms is collaborative project between Ed Macfarlane and Edd Gibson of Friendly Fires and Jon Brooks of The Advisory Circle, expertly blending blissful pop with more exploratory electronics, its roots lying in the artists’ shared love of soundtracks and electronic library music of the 70s and 80s. It will appeal strongly to fans of both bands.

“…starts with a clutch of songs so lovely, a floating flock of diaphanous electronic songbirds, that it feels like being seduced. The melodies and atmosphere of late afternoon sunshine slowly gathers you to its warm beating heart where, it turns out, you would rather like to stay. I haven’t heard music quite so evocative of time and place since first encountering Air’s ‘Moon Safari’. But while that consummate late-90s album had just enough dancefloor in its make up to ignite an ever-so-slightly strident sexiness, ‘Peel Away The Ivy’ swirls around a kind of epic lOcc pop beauty and whispers in your ear until you fail in love with it and its pastoral eroticism. Gorgeous.”

Ghost Box is a record label for a group of artists exploring the misremembered musical history of a parallel world.

“Buying one of its releases feels like stepping into another world” The Guardian

“...what's most impressive about Ghost Box is the aesthetic consistency and sheer quality of the material, recalling the heydays of labels such as Factory, 4AD and Warp.” Quietus

“...some of the most delightful electronica to arise in Britain since Aphex Twin, the Black Dog and Global Communication.” The Sunday Times
