Villagers announce new album and UK tour

Following on from the news that Conor O’Brien’s (aka Villagers) fourth studio album, The Art Of Pretending To Swim, will be released by Domino Records on 21st September, comes the announcement of a UK tour, including a date in Brighton, 31st October, at The Old Market.

The first song and video from the album, ‘A Trick Of The Light’

Following the sparse and intimate aura of 2015’s Darling Arithmetic, O’Brien’s new record reconnects with the multi-faceted approach of Villagers’ 2010 debut Becoming A Jackal and 2013’s {Awayland}, but with added soul and a richer sonic palette, whilst continuing to embrace existential fears and hopes in this technologically-centred dystopian age.
