Test Patterns

Gage Bickerstaff of Test Patterns has a lot to say, but does it very subtly. He is a music school drop out, and an eclectic composer who seems to have a love-hate relationship with pop music, reaching for pop motives and ideas but with a modern compositional mind, creating a tension seldom seen in contemporary mainstream music. This is pop music as he sees it; an outsider shining a light on something past its golden age. On a casual listen you might think you’re listening to the radio, but if you dig deeper you’ll discover a rich complexity of harmony and social awareness that competes with anything you come across in the modern zeitgeist.
