Unfailingly original, indie rock heroes Pattern Is Movement have deservedly climbed the rungs of the indie ladder and are resting, catching their breath, only few feet from the top. Based on the amazing energy given off during their live shows, it is clear that they will ultimately finish the climb and take their rightful place amongst the Built to Spills, Shellacs, and Galaxie 500s.
The two man wrecking crew of Andrew Thiboldeaux and Chris Ward have been on tour since September only to rest for a few days back in Philadelphia before playing several shows at this years CMJ Festival. Then, it’s back on the road again for a week or so in November.
We caught up with the fellows via the internet and persuaded them to answer some highly suspect questions!
