Watch: Patterns Unveil New Video

Collaboration with MCR Screenwipe on video for ‘Blood’ sees fusion of analogue and digital technology to create unique aesthetic

Manchester dream-pop quartet Patterns have unveiled their new video for single ‘Blood’. It sees the band combine forces with local documenters of all things music MCR Screenwipe to create a unique aesthetic (later to also translate to the eventual single artwork) via the combination of salvaged VHS equipment and new digital equipment to create a hypnotic visual accompaniment.

They say: “We’d been researching old video synth stuff for a while when Sam Alder from Scenewipe came across all these video feedback loops where you can create infinite fractal patterns by just filming a TV. Using old VHS cameras and video mixers we were able to feed footage into the feedback loops creating surreal psychedelic visions of our own.”
