After several years of recording, re-recording, moulding and shaping, Pattern is Movement‘s self-titled effort will finally be released on April 1st through Hometapes, accompanied by a record release show at Boot & Saddle on April 3rd.

The local duo of Andrew Thiboldeaux and Chris Ward teased the album last year with a creative There Will Be Blood listening party at PhilaMOCA.

They also played a handful of shows in support of the 12″ single release of “Suckling,” which is now followed-up by the next single “River” (premiered today via Spin). With their layered vocals, dynamic keyboard and drum pairings and experimental electronic flourishes, the new record nods to James Blake’s blend of soul, electronica and R&B but has a more cinematic focus.  Stream “River” below and get tickets and information to the 21+ show with Yellow Ostrich here.
