Pattern Is Movement – “Untitled (How Does It Feel)” (D’Angelo Cover) Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Pattern Is Movement have been covering D’Angelo’s “Untitled (How Does It Feel)” live for a few years now, but this is the first time we are hearing a studio recording from the Philly-based duo. It’s undeniable that Andrew Thiboldeaux and Chris Ward are outstanding musicians — we have heard them cover other notable artists in the past — and their take on “Untitled (How Does It Feel)” is no exception. Pattern Is Movement did not indulge in any wild re-imagination of the instrumentation, but Thiboldeaux’s voice lends a new interpretation of the canonical song. It’s out as the b-side of a limited-edition 12″ single in advance of a new album coming next year. Watch a video for the cover, featuring abstracted visuals from D’Angelo’s original clip, below.
