Villagers have returned with the announcement of their new studio album The Art Of Pretending To Swim and its lead single ‘A Trick Of The Light’.
The Art Of Pretending To Swim will be Conor O’Brien’s fourth studio album as Villagers and is due out on Friday, September 21st. The record follows the critically acclaimed Darling Arithmetic.
Our first glimpse into the world of The Art Of Pretending To Swim comes in the form of ‘A Trick Of The Light’, which is accompanied by a stunning video from Bob Gallagher. Featuring a sound that moves away from the enclosed intimate sound Darling Arithmetic, ‘A Trick Of The Light’ is a more light-footed affair sonically whilst still maintaining the deep ethereal weight of O’Brien lyrical musings.
