I Have A Tribe

‘La Neige’

Debut album Beneath A Yellow Moon is coming on May 27th .

Patrick O’Laoghaire’s I Have A Tribe music has been working towards a debut album with songs that have bursted with sincerity and intricate production. The latest track from the album on Grönland Records (Susanne Sundfor, Gang Of Four, Boy), is a fine example of what O’Laoghaire is able to achieve in his songwriting. It’s classical timeless music, and what may surprise is that the album will be stripped-back to its short recording time in Glasgow, where songs were captured without given too much time for embellishment, inspired by O’Laoghaire’s two-year old niece who would bash the keys of a piano in a carefree fashion.

‘Long Way Home’ is our first taste form it and the track is a pleasing slow-drifter. The video  is yet another collaboration with Scotland’s John B. McKenna.
