Roots of Rock

With rhythms grounded in rock, Sail Pattern takes our influences from traditional music to create our own special blend. Sometimes we like to do things the old fashioned way; real sound, real amps cranked until their tortured valves give us what we want: real songs with heart.

Our Music

We've been writing and recording songs as Sail Pattern since 2010. We're proud of our history, where we've always done things our own way and found our own path. From the early days and far into the future, we'll stick to that.

Hold Fast

From the summer of 2010, Sail Pattern has been writing and recording. Hold Fast was our first collection of songs, home-recorded on a shoestring. It's raw and DIY, but also the foundations of who we are!

Desperate Times

Desperate Times came next, recorded right off the back of Hold Fast up until 2013. Mostly originals, with a definite sound and rockier feel. Recorded at home in Halifax and Strongroom Studio, London.

Sail Pattern

Somewhere in Wales, in a farm quadrangle, in September 2015, the next project began.
