PatricKxxLee – “Room 37”

 Following a two-year hiatus, PatricKxxLee returns with his latest body of work – Room 37. The largely self-produced album plays with temporality by bouncing between the future and nostalgia. PatricK explain his intention of the album: 

“My goal was to make songs that make you feel that warm euphoric cloud inside. Infectious songs that [that] display my outlook on the situations that match the mood of the sound. For me, ROOM 37 is the balance between art and turning up.”
