Villagers - 'The Bell'

Conor O'Brien charms us with his folky vibes

Villagers - 'The Bell'

Album Info

  • Release Date: April 8, 2013
  • Label: Domino
It’s difficult to say anything mean about Villagers. Irish man Conor O’Brien, in his Fairisle knitwear, is like the even shyer brother of Graham Coxon and Conor Oberst. Awwww. They’re a gorgeous band, especially if you’re into the folky, ‘saying something meaningful’ vibe. ‘The Bell’ is one of their most upbeat, inventive tunes, like a more sensitive Metronomy.
