new music video: villagers

Critically acclaimed Irish group Villagers have released the music video for "That Day," the forthcoming 3rd single off of their Mercury Prize-nominated debut album, Becoming a Jackal. The video is understated for the most part, featuring frontman Conor O'Brien wandering through a pictaresque city strumming acoustic guitar, surrounded by some cool-looking lighting towards the end and occasionally harmonizing with ghostly versions of himself. It's the song itself, though, that does most of the heavy lifting here - its well-written and tightly arranged, and (luckily) doesn't need a splashy video to hold the listener's attention.








"That Day" will be released as a single on October 4th through Domino Records. Villagers is currently wrapping up a solo US/Canadian tour and will follow with a full-band swing through the UK, US, continental Europe, and the UK again in that order. - peter menniti
