Patricia Lalor has announced the release of her new EP Covers EP1 out October 2nd. To mark the announcement she has released the lead single and cover of The Marias’ ‘I Don’t Know You’.
Patricia treated fans to a live version of the cover earlier this year on her YouTube channel, which has gone on to clock up over 670K views.
The Covers EP1 finds the 14 year-old Wexford singer putting her dreamy indie touch to some of her favourite songs and biggest musical influences covering Radiohead’s ‘Present Tense’, ‘Change’ from Alex G and Mac DeMarco’s ‘My Kind Of Woman’. The latter has also previously been released live on Patricia’s YouTube channel, and has had over 1.1 million views since last year.
Patricia began uploading covers to YouTube age 11 and has gone on to achieve over 152K subscribers to her channel. She has caught high profile attention along the way, including the likes of Hozier who found her cover of his song ‘Cherry Wine’ leading him to call it “hands down, one of the best covers I’ve seen”.
2020 has already seen Patricia release two original and highly acclaimed EPs including Do It Again and Sleep Talk, with their haunting vocals and sharp lyrics they have demonstrated a songwriter far ahead of her years.
Patricia crafts hypnotic music, which brings to mind a cross between Billie Eilish, The Big Moon and SOAK, and has been turning the heads of tastemakers since the start of the year picking up support from the likes of The Independent, DIY Magazine, Refinery29, Sunday People, In Stereo Magazine, Hot Press, Irish Tatler and more.
