Reliably informed

South Shields-based soloist Patrick Gosling invites us on a deep-dive down memory lane with new single, The Water.

Overflowing with seaside motifs, the track opens with the gentle laughter of gulls before Gosling’s bittersweet guitar takes centre stage. The singer-songwriter’s vocals float over the instrumentation as he recalls the challenges faced during his youth. Then, seamlessly, they merge with Rachael Small’s backing vocals during the chorus to create a hazy, multi-tiered harmony. As the song grows into the bridge, a cascade of spritely and melodious lead guitar bubbles over the rest of the track.

Having established himself within Newcastle’s vibrant music scene as frontman of four-piece indie band Far Pacific, Gosling now writes under his own name.
