The next cool girl on the chilled alt-pop scene, 15-year-old Lalor recently signed to Atlantic Records.
Wexford indie teen Patricia Lalor has announced two headline shows for October 2021 - Dublin’s Smock Alley on the 25th and London's Courtyard Theatre on October 28th.
The announcement comes fresh on the back of the release of her brand new single ‘Vessel’. Patricia’s debut release on Atlantic Records takes her lo-fi pensive musings and builds upon her wise-beyond-her-years songwriting and delicate acoustic tones with an imposing string section to make a bold grand statement.
Discussing the shows, Patricia says, “I’m excited to get back on stage again - especially because I’ll be playing with my band for the first time and I won’t be a loner on stage anymore!”
“‘Vessel’ is a song I wrote about how the world perceives you, about how it expects you to grow up and mould to what’s happening around you / to you. I wrote it to kind of get a better understanding of it all but it just kind of made it all more messed up.”
Patricia released a trio of critically acclaimed EPs in 2020, including This Is How We Connect, While You Stand So Tall, Do It Again and Sleep Talk, which saw the 15-year-old singer compared to the likes of Billie Eilish, Warpaint, beabadoobee and Clairo.
She turned the heads of tastemakers with champions at Radio 1 including Jack Saunders and Annie Mac, as well as achieving huge support in Irish homeland, dubbed 'Hot for 2021' by Hot Press.
Now returning in 2021 with a bolder sound than ever before, Patricia Lalor is set to continue to solidify herself as one of the most exciting new names to come out of Ireland in recent times.
