Pat Scarlett – ‘You Make It Alright’

Singer-songwriter Pat Scarlett has been compared by AudioFuzz to “a male Hope Sandoval” with his soft and subtle retro sound, which is very reminiscent of the synth sound of the 70s and 80s. His track, ‘You Make It Alright’ is laid back and downbeat, and is nearly impossible to pin to any particular decade in the last 40 years.

Pat Scarlett’s deeply personal and emotional lyrics characterise his music, with his previous release, ‘4th Of July’ received warmly by critics and fans alike. His latest song, ‘You Make It Alright’ revealing the true romantic nature of the singer.

The video for ‘You Make It Alright’ is shot in 8mm style,  in pastel shades, showing one of Pat’s apparent romances. We follow his lady around the house and the city, with a collage of Pat leafed in (and sometimes the man himself) and out of the action. Speaking to about the song, he said it’s,

“something of a ruminating confession of affection in a shoegazy mix of droning synths and floating, amped out guitars.”

It’s light and airy and very catchy: ‘You Make It Alright’ is a great sounding track that will hook you in from the get go.
