Today Patrick O’Laoghaire a.k.a I Have A Tribe released his debut EP, Yellow Raincoats. The title track, which premiered a few weeks back on The Line Of Best Fit, is a follow up from 2013’s Monsoon which gained praise from the likes of NME, Notion and Pigeons & Planes.
I Have A Tribe spent a busy 2013 recording the ‘Yellow Raincoats’ EP with Rob Ellis and Conor O’Brien of Villagers, touring Europe with Anna Calvi, opening for Villagers’ Irish homecoming show and performing shows at Electric Picnic and CMJ in New York. With the fruits of those EP sessions ripe and ready to reveal this spring, I Have A Tribe’s blend of plaintive pop and folk-tinged melancholia has never been more evident than on the EP’s title track.
To celebrate the release of his debut EP he will play a string of shows in the coming weeks, including a set at Brighton’s Great Escape Festival today.
