Album of the Week: Awayland - Villagers

Album of the Week: Awayland - Villagers

Conor O'Brien formed Villagers after the break-up of his previous band The Immediate. The very next day, O'Brien wrote the first song after waking up with a hangover.O'Brien's time as a guitarist in Cathy Davey's band was also critical to the development of his style as he had never before performed alongside anyone outside of The Immediate.Villagers gave their first live performance as a support act with The Chapters at a show in Whelan's in November 2008.[3] At that point the band had previously only rehearsed together on two occasions.They had only seven songs, written by O'Brien and passed on to the rest of the band to learn.

Awayland is the brand new album, it was released on January 11, 2013 in the Republic of Ireland and January 14, 2013 in the UK on Domino Records..
