The Mercury Music Prize nominated Irish band Villagers takes to the road, showcasing the nominated debut album ‘Becoming A Jackal’. Dubliner Conor J. O’Brien, the man behind the music, cites an eclectic mix of influences and with tracks that swerve from psycho-drama to breezier pop, a theatrical undertone is omnipresent in the vivid narratives, gripping poetry and melodic depth of Villagers that defies categorisation.
