An excellent live performance from Waterford natives O Emporer, who have been receiving growing attention since their appearance at last year’s Hard Working Class Heroes in Dublin.

Following on from the truly excellent lead single Po, ‘Don’t Mind Me’ is a calmer affair, offering up a shimmering slice of carefully crafted soothing tones, with Keyboardist Phil Christie’s earnest vocals particular note-worthy. Standing somewhere between dreamy ’70s pop and the modern day output of Grizzly Bear and Midlake, this is a further indication of the bands potential, as expectation for their debut album, due out around September, continues to heighten.

Instantly memorable and intelligently layered, O Emporer are one of the brightest prospects in a prosperous Irish music scene.The band, who are signed with Universal Music Ireland, will release their Reverie EP on April 16th and you can catch their wonderful harmonies as they embark on a nationwide tour from this month, which will also see them make an appearance at Cork’s Indiependence festival in August.
