Irish indie folk act Villagers tour the UK this October. Conor O'Brien and his band will be playing in London, Oxford, Bath and Norwich. Get your Villagers tickets below.

Villagers are fronted by Conor O'Brien. They have performed at several music festivals and toured with Tracy Chapman, Bell X1, Tindersticks and Elbow.

They have one EP, titled Hollow Kind (2009). Their debut album Becoming a Jackal was released in 2010 and was shortlisted for both the Mercury Prize and the Choice Music Prize.

Their follow-up album, {Awayland}, was released on 14 January 2013, alongside the second single from the album, Nothing Arrived. They topped the charts once again in their Irish homeland with their third outing; Darling Arithmetic which came out on 13 April 2015 and saw them win the prestigious Ivor Novello Award. Their latest album release is Where Have You Been All My Life which they dropped on 8 January 2016.

With the release of their exciting new album The Art Of Pretending To Swim, they head out on tour to promote the new material. Catch them when they stop to play Rescue Rooms at Nottingham, Manchester’s Gorilla, O2 Academy2 Oxford, Arts Club Loft at Liverpool and Bristol Trinity during October 2018.

Always restless and inventive while always true to the power and glory of songwriting and melody, Conor O’Brien has made another great leap forward with Villagers’ fourth studio album, The Art Of Pretending To Swim, released by Domino on Friday 21st September.

Following the exquisitely sparse, intimate aura of 2015’s Darling Arithmetic, O’Brien’s new record reconnects with the multi-faceted approach of Villagers’ 2010 album debut Becoming A Jackal and 2013’s {Awayland} while adding a new-found soulfulness, rhythmic nous and dazzling panoply of sonic detail, both analogue and digital, creating feverish moods while writing effortlessly accessible tunes. Balanced with subtle aspects and lyrical themes that embrace existential fears and hopes in this desperate, technologically-centred dystopian age, The Art Of Pretending To Swim is the most brilliantly realised Villagers album to date.

The album was written, produced, mixed and primarily performed by Conor O’Brien in his Dublin studio.
