VIDEO: Villagers – The Waves


Domino have marked return of Villagers, with a brand new single, The Waves, watch the video below. The track is available to purchase now through iTunes HERE and will be released on special limited edition 7” (RUG488) on 22nd October 2012.The Waves suggestes a more electronic pop minimalism for Villagers second album building from pulses and synth lines through Conor’s affecting, tumbling vocals that break into a cathartic string drenched climax:it’s redolent of some of David Byrne’s latter work. The Waves is the first piece of music to be released from the follow-up to Villagers’ Mercury-nominated and Ivor Novello Award winning debut, Becoming a Jackal, details of which are to be announced soon.

‘I was looking up at the sky on a particularly clear night and it struck me that I had never written a song about those little moments when you feel a fundamental and awesome sense of wonder and a simultaneously humbling recognition of absolute insignificance’ – Conor O’Brien
