Simon's highly anticipated return to VII comes in the form of Black Rock - a showcase of his new 2022 sound that fuses some key Patterson trademark approaches to writing music but with a jacked up, fuel injected and completely enhanced sonic overhaul. This is fresh. This is exciting. This is outrageously powerful and of course deep in its emotional potency. This is so Simon Patterson. We. Are. In. Love. With. This. Sound. And if this is the sound of Simon Patterson on VII in 2022 then take us to the dance floor immediately.
