Saint Paul, Minnesota-based artist nobody likes you pat, the moniker for singer-songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Pat Kiloran shares his latest single “tired of going to bed,” which is plucked from his debut LP imago out November 18th via Nettwerk.
A moody-yet-energetic, angsty acoustic-pop song, “tired of going to bed” explores the age-old concept of going to bed angry but not wanting to. On his latest effort, nobody likes you pat heads shifts to a more stripped-down approach with a crisp production, clean guitar, and a light touch of synthesizers. Although Kiloran leans on a heavier and personal narrative, “tired of going to bed” has a feel-good cadence, propelled by a mid-tempo rhythm that’s ideal for slow dancing. Ultimately, nobody likes you pat’s latest offering showcases Kiloran’s musical and lyrical vulnerability while he seeks answers to the questions he never thought he’d have to ask himself.
“Relationships and marriage are not accurately portrayed very often on the silver-screen; they are full of constant stretching, growing, patience, and forgiveness. This song tackles the middle phase between the fight and the reconciliation,” says Kiloran. “Tired of going to bed” was co-written with LA-based musician/writer Savannah Sgro and recorded with Kiloran’s friend Jack Vondrachek in St. Paul.

Imago, the title to nobody likes you pat’s forthcoming debut album, is a play on the Latin phrase “imago dei,” which translates to “image of God.” This phrase often denotes a sacred description of humanity. “The theme of this album is loosely tying together a plethora of very specific and very human experiences from my own life or people’s lives that I am close to, seeking to help listeners grasp the beauty, value, and depth of their lives, particularly in the struggles and hardships therein, and specifically drive their hearts to the main point we so often misconstrue: unconditional love,” expresses Kiloran.
Nobody likes you pat was recently featured on Spotify’s Next Gen Singer-Songwriters, Warm Fuzzy Feeling, and Sommer Chillout playlists. “Tired of going to bed” follows nobody likes you pat’s previous 2022 singles “used to love girls,” “midwest blues,” “one day before I die,” “maybe monday,” and “things I wish you said.”
Pat Kiloran may be a father, husband, singer, songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist, mixer, and Midwesterner, but above all, he’s human.
Pat grew up in St. Paul, MN, with detours in Canada, Los Angeles, and Nashville. Along the way, he launched a career in audio production for film and television and eventually founded and fronted pop-rock band Milkk. Touring coast-to-coast, the group built buzz, generating millions of streams, garnering media acclaim, and landing countless music placements with ABC, CBS, NBC, and Disney. Once COVID hit, he admits, “It felt the right time do something else.” So, his family packed up their home in Nashville and moved back to Minnesota. Writing and recording in his attic, he introduced nobody likes you pat via the independent now that I’m here, i feel like myself EP and spinning EP in 2021. “I began the process for the album after I moved,” he states. “I was in the same environment I grew up in, but it was a new city ten years later. Everything felt more peaceful. Being here allowed me to find my identity. I tried to create music in a way that felt like a good reflection of who I am and what I’m trying to say.”
Like the rest of us, he spends a lot of time thinking of his family and friends. In his case, those thoughts turn into breezy, bold, and bright indie pop anthems rooted in relatable Americana-style storytelling and stitched together with homegrown production. Going by the name nobody likes you pat, he ponders humanity with the candor of a late-night coffee shop chat among old pals on his full-length debut, imago.
“Within a few months of starting nobody likes you pat, I knew the message for the first album,” he admits. “I’m writing from my perspective and showing my experiences. These are honest stories and thoughts about everyday life, growth, change, and philosophical expansion. It’s fuzzy, nostalgic, emotional, and raw. The colors are natural. To me, it feels like watching a home movie. I express a lot of emotion through my writing. I want this to be the soundtrack for people who are trying to get through their lives and deal with sadness. Maybe it’s a place for you to hear someone else has been there too. For me, nobody likes you pat is the diary of my life that I hope to look back on and read when I’m 80-years-old.”
