High Voltage Mathematics // Patterns are Germany’s finest Postpunk outfit. There’s not too much competition, I admit, but the three guys from Cologne can easily keep up with their idols in North America. With maximum amazement I found out that their label put the bands’ early EPs online for free download. Don’t own the “People I Adore” 7”? Download NOW!

Patterns - “Idle Eyes, Sore City” (MP3)

In the meantime, the band released a split LP with The Falcon Five and another shared 7” with fuckuismyname, and  Patterns’ full-length debut is about to be done according to the band’s blog. A good moment to get familiar with Germany’s finest Postpunk outfit!

The band play nervous and awkward DC-style Punk- and Mathrock, charged top to bottom. Their melodies are unconsumed, all grooves and breaks come tight. Of course I have to mention Q & Not U and Les Savy Fav, but I guess Patterns are fine with this comparison. Sooo good.
