After nearly a decade fronting post-hardcore outfit Coliseum, Ryan Patterson has moved to his next endeavor: Fotocrime. Using a combination of synths and drum machines in addition to guitar and vocals, Fotocrime is a new sound, as heard on songs like “Duplicate Days,” which you can stream below.
“‘Duplicate Days’ is the first song from the upcoming Always Night EP and the first Fotocrime recording with Nick Thieneman (guitar) and Shelley Anderson (bass),” Patterson tells Decibel. “The song expands on our melodic tendencies, opening with my twelve-string guitar and driven by Shelley’s bass and our ever-reliable drum machine, which we’ve affectionately named ‘Mother’. The guitar interplay between Nick’s bright, constantly moving guitar lines and my chiming chords is possibly my favorite part of ‘Duplicate Days’; while the vocals and lyrics ruminate on how frighteningly quickly time passes us by, the music is nearly joyous and propulsive as it presses ever forward.”
Listen to “Duplicate Days” now and pre-order Always Night through Golden Antenna.
