Patches – ‘Chrysanthemum’
Patches are a five-piece indie-pop band from Melbourne and they’re gearing up to release a new EP preceded by this track Chrysanthemum.
The track has been accompanied by a part-animated, part-real life video that’s pretty spectacular for a young band.
It’s a black and white affair featuring frontman Iain Wallace in a submarine. He’s the only thing that’s real in the video, the rest of it is made up of illustrations and cartoons.
The clip was created by the bass player Nick Pensa and it’s the band’s first ever video, making it even more impressive.
The track itself is a largely acoustic production with gentle vocals and haunting guitar strums. It builds to a stunning climax complete with orchestral stylings. Check it out, above.
