The dreamy soundscape and abundance of beaming, warm and enriching colours of Villagers’ latest remarkable work "Fever Dreams" might just be the perfect playground to start an extraordinary adventure set in an intermediate world created by Conor J. O’Brien. NBHAP author Annett Bonkowski talked to the renowned Irish songwriter about dreamlike sensations, nuanced discussions and the ties that bind us all.
Time itself is a peculiar construct. There is a first time for most things in life and, therefore, it is often these moments that hold a uniqueness and most likely a special sentiment that you then carry with you for the months and years to come, if you are lucky. Discovering an artist and fully embracing their work for the first time has always been, to this date, an exceptionally thrilling experience for me. In 2010, Villagers' magnificent debut album 'Becoming A Jackal' ended up leaving a lasting impression on me.
