Irish indie band Villagers released their debut album Becoming a Jackal back in 2010 and since then have gone on to produce a wide range of music to critical success. Renowned for mixing chilled melodies with sharp lyrics, the group have found a musical niche in creating relaxing tracks with an edge of intensity about them. But the real impact of Villagers can be found at live performances as frontman Conor O’Brien (pictured) and co ensure fans always leave feeling satisfied, packing gigs with tracks spanning across four albums and a host of singles. Now on a continental tour of the UK and Europe, the band will perform at venues across the country before taking the stage at Gorilla in February where they are sure to showcase songs from new album Where have you been all my life?, which was recorded in one day.
