On “Patience,” Porches Is Rooting for You, Even if You’re Not Rooting for Him

Aaron Maine, the musician behind the electro-indie outfit Porches, will release his fourth studio album under the moniker on March 13. The album, Ricky Music, solidifies the artist’s comfort with synth-pop leanings, while also serving up explicit introspection. The singles “Do U Wanna,” “rangerover” and now “Patience” precede the album’s release, with music videos for “Do U Wanna” and “Patience” offering imagery about isolation, introversion and, overall, a desire to overcome petty limitations.

In the music video for “Patience,” (directed by Nick Harwood, who also recently directed the music video for the single “Do U Wanna”), we see Maine in a high school gymnasium, dancing in front of an audience that is at first cheering him on, but eventually resorts to pelting basketballs at him. After encouragement from a dance partner to trudge through the onslaught of rubber, Maine eventually breaks through the crowd and finds himself perched atop a basketball hoop, ironically in the ideal position to be pelted by more basketballs.

“Patience feels like holding hands jumping out of a tree, and all you can do is laugh at the mess you’ve gotten yourselves into,” says Maine in a statement. “While the two of you spiral towards the grass in a beautiful sunset.”
