Following his We Fall Out Of Touch EP this past fall, critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Patrick Park releases his fourth full-length album, Love Like Swordstoday! Mixed & produced by Patrick Park and Dave Trumfio (Wilco, OK GoBuilt To Spill) & with contributions from Jenny Lee Lindberg (Warpaint) among others, the LP finds Los Angeles-based Patrick taking an introspective yet innovative approach to his solo acoustic style.
Love Like Swords ebbs & flows through a variety of styles, with Patrick’s pure vocal poetry captivating the listener. LP cut “Dust and Mud,” heard on American Songwriter, is an upbeat track accented by horns, bright harmonies & stomping drums. Title track “Love Like Swords” is an emotive track of booming percussion amidst intricate guitar riffs. “My Holding Hand Is Empty” slows the pace to folky finger-picking & sparking strings, sitting octaves above Park’s deep bass vocals. The “My Holding Hand Is Empty” video premiered with Paste Magazine and is available to post & share HERE.
