Ireland’s Villagers have lifted the lid on a his new track from upcoming LP “Darling Arithmetic” called “Hot Scary Summer”. The track follows lead cut “Courage”, and sees bandleader Conor O’Brien sing about lost love destroyed by “all the pretty young homophobes looking out for a fight”. “Darling Arithmetic” is out 13th April on Domino Records. The band are at the  UK, Nottingham, Glee Club on the 26th March


Folk singer Conor O’Brien is releasing the third Villagers album, Darling Arithmetic, on April 13th via Domino Records . He recorded and produced the album himself in his home, and the two songs that are out now, “Courage” and “Hot Scary Summer,” certainly have the intimacy of a home-recorded album. In comparison to the collaborator-filled Becoming a Jackal (2010) and Awayland (2013), there’s only minimal backing on this album from piano, mellotron and brushes, all also played by Conor. If these two singles are anything to go by, it’s looking like his most bare-bones album yet.
