Villagers’ Conor O’Brien popped into 98FM’s Totally Irish session earlier tonight and took the time to debut a brand new track called ‘Beatitudes’. A tender and delicate creation, O’Brien’s heart is firmly on his sleeve throughout this earnest little number, tenderly crooning his way through several doe-eyed couplets. “I weep like a baby when I think of you / But I sleep like a baby when I dream of you” – that, Mr O’Brien, is worthy of the finest Valentine’s Day Card. Lovely stuff.
Villagers play Marley Park with Beach House on July 23. Tickets on sale now.
