Ak Patterson

Ak Patterson

AK Patterson are a three-piece formed in Brighton after lead singer Alex, an art-school graduate found fellow bandmates Alfie and Nat on the festival circuit in 2015. With comparisons to the visceral attack of PJ Harvey, the feral cabaret of Nick Cave and the post-modern jazz grooves of GoGo Penguin, AK Patterson are a whirlwind of contrasts.

The multi-instrumentalists flavour the warmth of their organic instrumentation with electronic experimentation in the shape of mood-setting field recordings and subtle synths.

In 2018, the band worked with award-winning producer Charlie Andrew (Alt-J, Marika Hackman, Nick Mulvey) on their debut EP, Shadows. Following its release, they were invited to support Alt-J on tour culminating in two shows at the Royal Albert Hall. They subsequently embarked on their first headline tour in 2019 appearing at London’s Oslo. Festival appearances include Latitude, Boardmasters, Victorious, The Great Escape, Live at Leeds, and Blue Balls (Switzerland).

The band’s versatility has led to multiple collaborations, including the scoring of a short film, Adira’s Dream which has won numerous awards at festivals in the last year.

On 4th September 2020, AK Patterson released a brand new track in the shape of ‘Out of the Steel Works’. It features on their forthcoming EP Mettle, again produced by Charlie Andrew, and will be released on 15th January 2021.
