Jerrah Patston’s new single, a rollicking collaboration with Kate Field and Jonathan Yung, celebrates the fresh freedom of Spring just as Australia emerges from prolonged pandemic lockdowns.
This single follows up Patston’s acclaimed debut album Sounds Like Rain and is his first collaboration with Field and Yung since their work on Club Weld’s Remix The House LP for Vivid Live in 2017.
Field’s crystalline lead vocals for Spring Could Sing ring out strong and clear, while Yung’s sparkling piano elevates the recording to an effervescence evoking The Velvet Underground’s I’m Sticking With You or Jonathan Richman’s Everyday Clothes.
The track was recorded and mixed by Cat Colman at EORA TAFE in Redfern.

Jerrah Patston writes catchy pop-folk observations about his experiences … visiting the Penrith weir, going on family cruises, losing Opal Cards, enjoying food courts, swimming pools, netball, good friends and braces. He will be appearing at the popular Blue Mountains Music Festival in 2022.
Kate Field is an unstoppable creative force. Equally comfortable singing lead or harmonies, she is inspired by pop sounds, TV themes and cartoons. Field’s Youtube channel Kate’s Lullaby Hour launches soon.
Jonathan Yung plays classical piano, especially Bach and Debussy and writes original pop songs and ballads. Lately he’s been pumping out disco inspired instrumental tracks. Yung is a member of Club Weld’s newly formed party band, Electric Love.
