Domino are excited to hail the return of Villagers, with a brand new single, The Waves, on 19th October 2012.
A beautiful sweeping song which kick starts into life with an electronic pulse and builds to a dramatic string laden climax, 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 was directed by Alden Volney and mirrors the song perfectly.
The Waves will be released on special limited edition 7” (RUG488) and on digital download (RUG488D1).
