Tune Of The Week: 22/04/2011

This week has been good for Conor J O’Brien. Villagers has been nominated for an Ivor Novello Award for ‘Becoming a Jackal’ in the’ Best Song Musically and Lyrically’ category.

But I’m not making ‘Becoming a Jackal’ Tune of the Week, no that’s going to the new single ‘The Pact’ which is a glorious piece of enchantment. It comes with a delightful video made by Myles O’Reilly, who makes fantastic use of depth of field. Love it.

The Pact is out on may 13th and Villagers are playing lots of gigs this Summer including Sea Sessions in June  and Marley Park with Beach House on July 23rd.
