Villagers is coming back to LantarenVenster! More than two years after their sold-out previous concert, the Irish indie folk band of singer-songwriter Conor O’Brien will present the music from the new album That Golden Time (to be released in early May) to the Rotterdam fans on May 29.
O’Brien is a man with a remarkable talent for writing introspective songs. With Villagers he makes inventive, incisive folk pop, often intimate and narrative. Almost fifteen years ago, Villagers was born with Becoming A Jackal, an album full of acoustic folk songs about myths and magic. Conor has now broadened his horizons and completely reinvented Villagers: a soulful, layered sound was combined with accessible melodies. Suddenly he also made spiritual jazz, worked with a flutist and used samples of gospel and soul legends such as The Dixie Hummingbirds and Donnie Hathaway.
