'Let me live, love and say it well in good sentences'

O’Brien, Blasket Islands and a clear day of summer

Villagers release a third studio album, ‘Darling Arithmetic’ (IRE: April 10th, UK/EU: April 13th, US: April 14th, 2015 via Domino Records) in a couple of months and have given us a taste of what’s to come with the stunning single, ‘Courage’. Few things bring me such peace as listening to Conor J O’Brien…perhaps if I was driving towards Slea Head on a clear day of summer, gazing out across the sea to the Blasket Islands with the track on repeat, this would be the only imaginable improvement to the experience. I fully anticipate this album being a contender for the 2015 Mercury Prize if this track is anything to go by.

Track List
1. ‘Courage’
2. ‘Everything I Am Is Yours’
3. ‘Dawning On Me’
4. ‘Hot Scary Summer’
5. ‘The Soul Serene’
6. ‘Darling Arithmetic’
7. ‘Little Bigot’
8. ‘No-one To Blame’
9. ‘So Naïve’

The band will tour the UK, Ireland and Europe in April/May, 2015 and tickets go on presale this coming Wednesday at 9am (February 11th, 2015) via the official website below.
