 The Art of Pretending to Swim (Incl. Bonus 10" Vinyl)



Always restless and inventive while always true to the power and glory of songwriting and melody, Conor O'Brien has made another great leap forward with Villagers' fourth studio album, The Art Of Pretending To Swim, released by Domino on Friday 21st September.

Following the exquisitely sparse, intimate aura of 2015's Darling Arithmetic, OBriens new record reconnects with the multi-faceted approach of Villagers' 2010 album debut Becoming A Jackal and 2013's {Awayland} while adding a new-found soulfulness, rhythmic nous and dazzling panoply of sonic detail, both analogue and digital, creating feverish moods while writing effortlessly accessible tunes. Balanced with subtle aspects and lyrical themes that embrace existential fears and hopes in this desperate, technologically-centred dystopian age, The Art Of Pretending To Swim is the most brilliantly realised Villagers album to date.

The album was written, produced, mixed and primarily performed by Conor O'Brien in his Dublin studio.


Deluxe LP (includes 10" of a 12-minute version of 'Ada' and B-side 'This Is The Art Of Pretending To Swim' plus signed lyric booklet)
