Irish indie-folk stalwarts Villagers mark their first visit to The Source with an acoustic set.
Since their debut album ‘Becoming a Jackal’ was released more than 10 years ago, Conor O’Brien’s Villagers project have provided listeners with a series of engaging, personal albums. With the release of their fifth studio album ‘Fever Dreams’ in 2021 this lineage is followed and enhanced to mesmerizing effect.
Written over the course of two years, the main bodies of the songs were recorded in a series of full-band studio sessions in late 2019 and early 2020. During the long, slow pandemic days, O’Brien refined them in his home studio in Dublin, and the album was then mixed by David Wrench (Frank Ocean, The xx, FKA Twigs). Like all the best records – ‘Fever Dreams’ becomes a mode of transport; it picks you up from where you are and sets you down elsewhere.
