Patchwork Guilt – ‘Dreamer, shimmer away’


Patchwork Guilt – the work of Bristolian songwriter Phoenix Mundy – has been winning hearts and turning heads with her enchanting bedroom-psych-pop sounds since 2014.

Now based in Manchester, following a stint in Liverpool, these late-night musical tinkerings have given rise to two albums (2014’s Punch Bowl and 2015’s Dreaming on the Internet) and three EPs and a new single ‘Dreamer, shimmer away’. A hazy, dreamy piece of intimate psych-pop with an ethereal quality, ‘Dreamer, shimmer away’ drifts along at its own languid pace amid a hushed, intimate and nocturnal vibe. A plinking piano twinkles through the layers of guitars, synths and undulating mellowness, as Mundy’s rich, smokey (and somewhat haunting) vocals make their mark with hypnotic effect. A pensive, introspective late-night jam that is resolutely laid-back and beautiful.

Listen to ‘Dreamer, shimmer away’ below – and if that is to your liking, there is plenty more where that came from here.

Introducing: Patchwork Guilt


Patchwork Guilt was born in a bedroom in Bristol, in 2014, through the late-night tinkerings of songwriter Phoenix Mundy.

Now based in Liverpool, she has since recorded and self-released two albums (2014’s Punch Bowl & 2015’s Dreaming on the Internet) and three EPs; it is a back catalogue which exudes beauty, invention and class. Latest single ‘Unwind’ follows in a similar vein; it is an intimate and imaginative, charming and infectious slice of lush, lo-fi dreamy indie-pop. Mundy’s unforgettable smokey vocals carve through layers of guitars, synths and any manner of lush sounds, to leave us utterly bewitched by this bubbly, fizzy gem that sparkles and glistens like summer sun the tranquil blue sea. Now, ‘Unwind’ should be enough to convince you but you will be left similarly smitten by the hushed, hazy and spaced-out psych-pop of ‘Get to Rest’ and the undulating manoeuvres of ‘Plastic Gazing Eye’.

If you listen to one new artist/act today, please let it be Patchwork Guilt. You will NOT be left disappointed. You can find the new single along with even more of her music, on her Bandcamp page.
