Nettwerk Records is excited to announce the signing of musician-producer Ark Patrol. Ark Patrol joins Nettwerk’s expanding roster of electronic artists that includes Hermitude, Miami Horror, il:lo, Mishegas, and Dreamers Delight.
Over the last few years, producer Ark Patrol (aka Brandon Gomez) has never strayed from his passion for bringing new sounds and light to his fans. When diagnosed with cancer in 2018, he pushed through the hardships with music. At the top of 2019, he went out on his first national tour alongside Baynk and Big Wild while also playing Splash-House music festival. Several years later, he’s beaten cancer and has had a string of successful releases, including a song that went viral on TikTok, the lead trailer for the HBO series Euphoria, as well as the new Microsoft Surface Earbuds spot. Now on Nettwerk Records, it’s time for him to step into a new light as a pioneer of indie dance music.
Today, Ark Patrol shares the first Nettwerk single, “Hold On,” a track with longtime collaborator and vocalist Veronika Redd. Veronika and Brandon grew up together in Hawaii, and the latest single is the follow-up to their previous collaboration, “Let Go,”a track that went viral with 517k TikTok videos and 110k daily streams on Spotify. “I wanted to make something that felt cleansing or purifying, and the composition of this one felt right,” he says. “The main melody is carried over from an older album that didn’t fully pan out but was repurposed in a cozy way. Veronika came through with lyrics and the most chill performance ever.”
“Hold On” is available at digital retailers https://arkpatrol.ffm.to/holdon.
