Tourist – ‘Patterns (feat. Lianne La Havas)’
UK’s Tourist is showing off his new Patterns EP with the premiere of the titular track. A wistful garage-influenced tune, “Patterns” is a slice of subdued euphoria. Lianne La Havas’ soulful vocals truly shine, and the backing of a rousing choir gives the track a gospel-tinged vibe. Between the production and vocals, the track recalls some of Disclosure’s earlier cuts (fittingly so, since their pair’s Method Records imprint is releasing the track in the UK).
The release comes at a busy tour for the UK artist: which included a slot on Ultra’s live stage last month and a full festival schedule ahead of him, including stops at George, WA’s Sasquatch Festival, Detroit, MI’s Movement Electronic Festival, and New York City’s Governors Ball. Full tour dates are below.
