Irish singer-songwriter Patrick is starting his 2020 as he means to go on. The real-talk lyricist is releasing a heartfelt piano-driven pop-rock track on the 17th January, ‘Heavenly Bodies’ will be available via Lovers Music.
After his first Soundcloud demo ‘No Control’ reached over 225,000 streams, Patrick has since released two emotionally fuelled ballads in the form of ‘Pull The Trigger’ and ‘Psychedelic Love Storm.’ Now bringing his soulful, euphoric vocal tones to an uplifting, upbeat instrumental, ‘Heavenly Bodies’ perfectly encapsulates a whole new side to Patrick’s energy, whilst still maintaining his signature honest vocal delivery.
A self-taught pianist from an early age, Patrick’s unique style has developed from his love of the likes of Carole King and Adele. After being born with a hearing defect, he hears through vibrations, giving him an inimitable approach when exploring his visions as a songwriter. His versatile singing range and open lyrics are no exception in ‘Heavenly Bodies,’ a track that deeply explores the traumatic experience and effects of a personal break-up. Explaining the track, he added:
“Short version: I fell for someone I shouldn’t have fallen for. I ignored the signs, until it was too late. My head got f**ked up afterwards. I wrote a song as my therapy. Shorter version: Men are dicks.”
Matching Patrick’s sincere break-up account with equally as emotive background music was only going to have one outcome. Staccato piano melodies, steady pop-rock drum grooves and delicate guitar work make for an undeniably catchy single that you’ll find very difficult not to sing along to.
After being the victim of homophobic abuse from the early days of his performances, Patrick struggled with his own personal demons and used them as a trigger to explore his mental health and sexuality through music. Now renowned for his genuinely open and honest work, he’s turning heads left right and centre. In fact, his last single ‘Psychedelic Love Storm’ was recently added to Spotify’s ‘Out Now’ playlist and has been nominated for an LGBTQ Music Award: https://bit.ly/2rWJHvS
After extensive festival slots and touring across the UK and beyond, Patrick’s taken his raw blend of pop, soul and RnB to audiences both old and new and is building a seriously loyal fanbase who stand by every note he writes. Starting 2020 by releasing ‘Heavenly Bodies’ is a real statement of intent, so brace yourselves for a huge year with Patrick.
