My World Alone
"I’ve been a fan of space-folk troubadour Patrick Galactic since hearing his great 2016 EP, Running from the Sun. Galactic’s songs split the difference between Americana, glacial electronic music, and melodic psychedelia–Gram Parsons as Major Tom, in a space ship shuddering during reentry. It’s a sound flush with warmth, even as it’s imbued with an undercurrent of haunted expansiveness." Tony Kay, Artist Home
"It takes a special kind of courage to go full-on, heart-on-sleeve sincere amidst an art form that traffics in detached cool, and that total commitment gives the songs on this lovely grower of an EP their quiet power." -The Sunbreak
My favorite part of Galactic’s record is the cohesiveness it conveys. The transitions in and out of each song are executed flawlessly and transform the EP into one continuous story with five chapters. By binding all the songs together as he does, Galactic keeps listeners interested for all 17 minutes of his EP." -Northwest Music Scene
"It's a gem of a record that had me wishing it was a full-on LP throughout the sprawling, cinematic 17-minute auditory experience." -Sean DeTore, MyNorthwest.com
"Tacoma's Patrick Galactic is the best singer/songwriter from Canada to Portland. 'Nuff said. -Nadamucho
"...a sly, shimmering affair, an emotionally-charged current of indie pop perfection that fuses powerful folk harmonies, outsider songwriting, and ethereal, kaleidoscopic production."
-Chuck Stern, Break Thru Radio / Ranker

“My World Alone” reimagines the classic crooner as a toxic male bemoaning his inability to connect as ethereal synths boogie against an infectious bass line. Cosmic funk, undeniable pop hooks and Ian Sides’s smooth-gliding bass line create a wonky swagger as Galactic’s narcissistic narrator airs his utter lack of self-awareness.
Seattle psych pop artist Patrick Galactic has endeared himself to northwest audiences with his magnetic live performances and cerebral storytelling. His use of raw acoustic instrumentation, cinematic electro-psych and pure pop melodies has drawn comparisons to Ariel Pink, Kurt Vile, and Unknown Mortal Orchestra. His newest release, the synth-pop singalong “My World Alone” and his forthcoming EP “No Future to Fear” represent a seismic shift in Galactic’s creative arch.
Galactic’s commitment to immersive, all-encompassing sonic productions and unfailingly memorable melodies promises to challenge his audience, and the songwriter himself, for years to come.
