Villagers New Single and Video: The Waves

10 Oct

Villagers are back with their first release from their second album. Due for release on the 22nd of October “The Waves” is a slightly new direction for Conor J O’Brien and his band as they try to follow-up a hugely successful debut album. The song still carries Conor’s direct style of delivering lyrics with a build up from almost speaking to full singing. The music has far more electronic sounds driving it than anything previously done which will surely bother some people who wanted more of the man and his guitar feel to the last album. This song feels more like what the live shows brought to the music with the huge build up at the end you can already see the flashing lights and the wall of sound that the band created on their last couple of tours.

While I am partial to the stripped back performances of Conor on his own, this is still an interesting song which hopefully spells good thing for the album. There is just something about Conor’s voice that can take a huge new sound and still make it feel personal and direct. So as long as he’s writing the lyrics and singing the vocals I can’t imagine that the new sound in this single will be anything to worry about if you were just hoping for more of the first album, his influence will surely tie it all together to produce another great album.

Here is the album trailer which seems to hint at the mix of the two sounds the old and the new a little bit.
