Villagers Release New Single – “The Waves”

The Waves is the first piece of music to be released from the follow-up to Villagers’ Mercury-nominated and Ivor Novello Award winning debut, Becoming a Jackal, details of which are to be announced soon.

‘I was looking up at the sky on a particularly clear night and it struck me that I had never written a song about those little moments when you feel a fundamental and awesome sense of wonder and a simultaneously humbling recognition of absolute insignificance’ – Conor O’Brien

The video accompanying The Waves was directed by Alden Volney and mirrors the song perfectly.
