Stream: “Come Along” – Pattern Pusher




It’s the middle of May 2021; summer looms over the Northern Hemisphere as many of us slowly emerge after a year-long hiatus from life as we once knew it. COVID-19 took loved ones too soon, halted entire economies, and ruined livelihoods, but we’re returning: The days are getting warmer, brighter, and longer as a new normal slowly takes shape.

Now that we’ve gone through hell and back, we’re not letting anything or anyone stop our good time, and Pattern Pusher’s new single is the perfect way to kickstart the better days to come. Feverish and funky, the band’s feel-good jam “Come Along” is the perfect addition to any summer soundtrack, and a beacon for a brighter future.

Come Along - Patter Pusher
Come Along – Pattern Pusher
Come on now I got something for you
Gonna make you smile when you’re feeling blue
Don’t walk on by if you know you should
Give it a try and it’ll do you good
Take my hand are you feeling good (Yeah we’re feeling good)
Are you feeling good (Yeah we’re feeling good)
Ah yeah we’re feeling good
Coz you don’t have to lie awake at night
Feels like someone is holding you tight
Silk sheets will keep you warm
And sweet dreams will take you home

Atwood Magazine is proud to be premiering “Come Along,” Pattern Pusher’s effervescent and energizing first single in over a year. The funk-soul trio from the UK’s South West, Pattern Pusher debuted in early 2018 and have been radiating their refreshingly classic sound ever since. Consisting of Alex Johnstone on keys and vocals, Benny G on bass, and Benny C on drums, the group had been steadily releasing a stream of groovy songs for two years prior to the pandemic; returning over a year after May 2020’s “Here We Go!” Pattern Pusher sound better than ever – and ready to tackle the summer ahead. “Come Along” embodies positive thinking with an inspiring, optimistic tune and a “join together” mentality, welcoming one and all to embrace the bright side of life.

Pulsing bass, thwomping drums, and radiant keyboards coalesce as Pattern Pusher come alive in a euphoric chorus:

Come along,
Don’t be shy
It’s alright
Come along,
Give it a try
You know it’s alright

“’Come Along’ was written during the summer of lockdown on a sunny day,” Pattern Pusher tell Atwood Magazine.  “Alex took his keyboards into the garden and started playing the riff and instantly Ben started jamming on his base. It came together quite quickly.”

“The lyrics are about enticing someone to do something with a slightly ambiguous undertone. It is about not being able to get together and itching to get back out into the world and start moving forward again. It was one of the first songs written for the new album and sets the tone for the upbeat, positive funk sound that typifies the album. We chose to release it as the first single because it is instantly accessible and is a positive call to action to have fun and enjoy life as we emerge from lockdown.”

Come on in (come on in)
To our house (to our house)
Coz this here (Coz this here)
Is what it’s all about (what it’s all about)
Let’s talk now (Let’s talk now)
About feeling good (About feeling good)
Ah yeah we’re feeling good
Coz you don’t have to lie awake at night
Feels like someone is holding you tight
Silk sheets will keep you warm
And sweet dreams will take you home

Written at a time when we could only dream of better days, “Come Along” arrives as we’re now beginning to live them. Let Pattern Pusher soundtrack the dawn of this new age with a song bursting with sweet melodies and sun-kissed energy.

The first single off a forthcoming debut album, “Come Along” certainly captures the dynamic, feel-good charm of this up-and-coming three-piece. Stream Pattern Pusher’s latest single exclusively on Atwood Magazine!

Come along,
Don’t be shy
It’s alright
Come along,
Give it a try
You know it’s alright
Just come along come along,
You know you got to come along
With me
