Beneath A Yellow Moon
"The moon each evening above the studio was beautiful and yellow," recalls Patrick O'Laoghaire. He calls his first album 'Beneath A Yellow Moon' and dedicates the eleven brilliant tracks he has recorded with producer Paul Savage to the Earth's sole natural satellite. Patrick AKA I Have A Tribe sees something, discovers a singularity, a beauty in it and elaborates on it poetically. The Irishman's music is very situational and lives from the moment. A search for similar artist spits out bands like Midlake, whose folky instrumentation I Have A Tribe most closely resembles yet, here and there, versatile electronic soundbites surface; the synthesizer parts in 'Calgary' are reminiscent of Bowie's Berlin phase and unquestionably invoke his masterpiece 'Low'. In some more intense moments Patrick brings a musical power that is reminiscent of Warren Ellis' The Dirty Three; vocally, Patrick can be compared to Antony / Anohni and Tom Waits but, somehow, none of that really captures it... Patrick's music is too unique to be pigeonholed.
