EP Stream: O Emperor – Lizard


Set for vinyl release via Trout Records on November 6, Lizard feels like a real arrival for Waterford quintet O Emperor . A four-track EP of harmony-driven psych-pop conjuring the likes of Gruff Rhys, Ariel Pink and Tame Impala’s more restrained efforts, it’s a suitably kaleidoscopic masterstroke revealing a band on the cusp of potentially extraordinary things.

O Emperor play the following dates in November and December:

November 15: Theatre Royal, Waterford
November 26: Sugar Club, Dublin
November 28: Roisin Dubh, Galway
November 30: Shacklewell Arms, London
December 3: The Pavilion, Ireland
