Villagers’ album {Awayland} has just been nominated for the Mercury Prize, album of the year 2013. This is the second nomination for Villagers, which makes them the first Irish act to make the list twice. The winner will be announced in London on 30th October.

Villagers’ current single is “Earthly Pleasure” from their critically acclaimed Number 1 album, {Awayland}. A compelling fantasy with ‘spiky lyrics, restless rhythms and a lovely melodic chorus’ (the Evening Standard). It follows on from previous singles “The Waves” and “Nothing Arrived”. {Awayland} is the follow up to the debut Choice & Mercury Music Prize nominated album Becoming A Jackal.

In March Villagers played two sold-out shows in Dublin’s Olympia Theatre and more recently Conor O’Brien was invited to appear at Beck’s Song Reader Live at The Barbican in London, alongside Jarvis, Franz Ferdinand, Charlotte Gainsbourg and others. Conor performed his own sensitive version of “Old Shanghai” which was hailed as a standout of the evening by The Independent and also performed a duet with Beck on closing song “Do We, We Do”.
