Villagers is the brainchild of Conor J. O’Brien, who has already toured Ireland twice, played festivals at home and abroad, and opened for the likes of Neil Young, Wild Beasts and Cass McCombs. To add to that, he’s just signed to Domino records, who’ll be releasing his debut single ‘Becoming A Jackal’ on 26th April.
They’ll be performing at this year’s SXSW festival in the US and will join Tindersticks as special guests on their March UK tour.
