VIDEO PREMIERE: "All You Want" (PATIENT LOUNGE)
IF ALL YOU WANT IS SOME MUSICAL TO DISTRACT FROM THE WORRYING STATE OF THE WORLD RIGHT NOW - LOOK NO FURTHER THAN THE BRAND NEW BLISSFUL MUSIC VIDEO FROM BRISSIE ROCKERS PATIENT LOUNGE PREMIERING RIGHT NOW ON THE SOUNDCHECK.
Justly defined as "ones to watch' since debuting under their current moniker last year, Brisbane quartet Patient Lounge are the antidote to stale rock and roll. Armed with a delicate blend of rock, prog and smatterings of jazz and pop, the group have steadily honed their intricacies while snagging coveted tour supports and shows alongside the cream of the crop of the Aussie alternative world. And while speakers all over town have had a chance to taste the potent power of Patient Lounge already with their debut single All You Want out last April and a follow-up single New Man earlier this year, the gents are now unleashing a kaleidoscopic visual wonderland for their jangly tune All You Want.
Teaming up with actual visual wizard Adrian Goleby and inspired by their whimsical single cover art, Patient Lounge grasp the smoky grooves and colourful licks from their debut tune and deliver a video outing that perfectly encapsulates the band on a whole: eclectic, vibrant with touches of smoulder (and a healthy dose of rock and roll):
"We really fell in love with the amazing artwork that we got for 'All You Want' by Agnes Cecile and wanted to emulate that vibe in the music clip. It was actually pretty crazy - to get that smokey effect we literally had to fill a shed with probably toxic coloured smoke, but that's rock n roll babyyy." - Patient Lounge
A band truly set to ignite the prog rock world, watch this space for more musical shenanigans from this Brissie bunch for 2020. But in the meantime, with the world currently in disarray, we could all use a little distraction, and Patient Lounge have got you covered with their brand new clip premiering today and due for official release later this week. Come for the riffs, stay for the colourful bliss and get temporarily lost in the shimmering rabbit hole that is All You Want. Check it out below!

“Another rocket firing up the ascendancy of Aussie prog metal alongside names like Voyager and Karnivool, if you haven’t zeroed in on Patient Lounge being the next big deal, now is your chance.”
“If you like Australian prog rock I’d be getting onto the Patient Lounge train. Cause these guys are going places.”
“…one of Aussie music’s most exciting emerging acts… Patient Lounge deliver a sonic smorgasbord of brilliant sounds. …The result is one of the most dynamic listening experiences we’ve come across in some time.”
“This is a melting pot of everything from prog, to power-metal to pop rock. Quite the spicy mix!”
