Patricia Lalor has released her brand new single ‘Vessel’. The track is the Irish alt-pop teen prodigy’s debut release on Atlantic Records.

‘Vessel’ takes Patricia’s 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 with her first release in 2021.

Regarding the single Patricia says, “‘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 Wexford singer tipped as the next Billie Eilish, while also draw comparisons to the likes of 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 from RTÉ in her Irish homeland, while press support came around the world from the likes of DIY Magazine, Refinery29, Indie88, 20 Minuten, Irish Tatler, Hot Press and more.

Patricia was included in a number of high profile end of year tips for 2021 including The Independent’s ‘Ones To Watch’ and Sunday People’s ‘Legends Of The Future’. Spotify are also huge champions of Patricia Lalor and featured every original single from the singer in 2020 in their New Music Friday playlist.

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.
