Richmond, VA musician Pat Absent released his debut album, ‘Tangible Absence,’ on December 18th. Produced by Benjamin Schurr (Br’er, Luna Honey, Tadzio), ‘Tangible Absence’ marks the first-ever release from Pat Absent. The album showcases an eclectic range of sounds in the rock, dream-pop, and synth-pop spectrums; tracks like “Outlet” mesh lush synths with jangling guitars, while “Oh No” presents an energetic, rock-forward sound.
The album’s lyrics were written in the midst of pandemic lockdown, feeling trapped in the Washington, D.C. suburbs, and starkly reflecting the eerie world outside Pat’s window.
Tangible Absence describes both the palpable feeling of something missing that drives people to create and the sense of loss that filled so much of an especially difficult year on planet Earth. Pat Absent’s music is the essential outlet of an anxious mind living in these interesting times.
