So here’s the new video for Villagers‘ ‘The Waves’ and sound of Villagers has certainly moved on since ‘Becoming A Jackal’, with its electronic twinkly bits and beeps. At the time of writing, I’m not entirely sure what I think of this, the dischord between the vocals and the instrumentation at the start of the track, irks the life out of me. But I love the song when it really kicks in.
It’s available to download on iTunes now and will be available on vinyl in October via Domino Records. No news of a second album release date or title yet.
