Creative Review New Music
Patricia Lalor has released her brand new single ‘This Man Thought He Saved Me’, the first taste of her forthcoming EP This is How We Connect, While You Stand So Tall out December 4th.
‘This Man Thought He Saved Me’ is a brooding indie track laced with hypnotic synths, while Patricia’s haunting vocals call out people who don’t act upon doing the right thing. The video finds Patricia emanating from her house in bursts of colour and hazy smoke.
Regarding the single Patricia says, “It’s a song about people supporting something they believe in but not willing to do or say anything that stands up for it.”
The upcoming EP This Is How We Connect, While You Stand So Tall features further lo-fi alt-pop gems, including the solemn trance of ‘To Cope’, mesmeric indie anthem ‘Same Place Again’ and the pensive musings of ‘Felt Something Finally’ which is drenched in gorgeous down-tempo synths.
This Is How We Connect, While You Stand So Tall is the third original EP from Patricia Lalor this year following Do It Again and Sleep Talk, which have been met by great acclaim and turning the heads of tastemakers including The Independent, DIY Magazine, Refinery29, Sunday People, In Stereo Magazine, Hot Press, Irish Tatler, Indie 88, Ones To Watch and more.
The 15-year-old Wexford singer has been tipped as the next Billie Eilish, while she has also drawn comparisons to the likes of Warpaint, beabadoobee and Clairo.
2020 has also seen Patricia release Covers EP1, which found the young musician putting her compelling twist on some of her favourite songs and biggest musical influences. Patricia originally rose to prominence via her covers and started uploading them to YouTube age 11. She has since gone on to achieve 162,000 subscribers to her channel.
With the release of ‘This Man Thought He Saved Me’, Patricia continues to showcase her consistency for evocative vocals, sharp lyrics and fascinating music. The upcoming EP This is How We Connect, While You Stand So Tall solidifies Patricia’s songwriting talents which are far ahead of her years.
