About TAU: Tau is the group formed by Seán Mulrooney who started his voyage into pyschedelic music as a member of Dead Skeletons in 2012/2013. Tau who have released 2 LPs and 3 Eps to date have now evolved into Tau & the Drones of Praise. Their music has been called Shamanic Rock, Ancestral Goth and neo Folk to name a few. The most recent expolrations into Mulrooneys ancient Irish spirituality and folk music tradidtions has made the sound something singular and unique.
Tau & the Drones of Praise was already slated to appear at the cancelled Roadburn Festival 2020, participated in Roadburn Redux back in April, helping to tide us over in yet another year with no physical edition of the festival. Their hypnotic neo-folk performance featured an appearance from Clannad’s Pól Brennan, and dived headfirst into their back catalogue of delights. No-one could accuse them of phoning it in. As Mulrooney says, “As was with the lockdown situation last year, we hadn’t been in the studio together for months. We were adulated to perform again and get creative. Even without an audience, we built our own world. There is something vital about the whole concert. Im very proud to release this journey through past, present and future material, Dream Awake”
Roadburn comments: “We’re thrilled to announce that this acid-tinged psych troupe will be packing up and heading to Tilburg in April, led by Dubliner Sean Mulrooney. Bringing along a suitcase full of extrasensory delights and magic potions, no doubt, Tau & the Drones of Praise will be setting up shop and handing out feel good vibes like nobody’s business. Expect to leave this earthly plane and head out on a meditative voyage of sonic discovery – Sean will be our guide through shamanic experimentalism, folk-led flourishes and far out lysergic luminance.
Having already wowed the crowds at highly regarded festivals throughout Europe, such as Transmusicales , Fusion Festival and Le Guess Who? we’re beyond excited to be one of the first stops on their return to the live stage. Expectations are high!”
