Hi-Res
“I can only really speak for myself but I’ve found a lot of strength and solace in reading books that were written before the internet was invented. I think music, art and literature saved my brain." This is how Villagers' frontman Conor O'Brien describes the anxious period brought on by the pandemic in April 2020, the isolation of which was used to create his fifth album. Fever Dreams focuses on the senses that touch the heart, moving away from narrative and plastic themes. In his cracked voice, the Irishman repeats a few sparse lyrics over luxurious orchestrations, where glockenspiel, piano, strings and sax predominate in successive lyrical flights (So Simpatico, Deep In My Heart), giving substance to his feverish, sometimes sober reveries (Full Faith In Providence, Song In Seven). An ode to sensitive reality rather than imaginary networks, these ten delicate, kinetic miniatures weave a viscerally poetic pop-folk story, close to London's The Clientele. A delight.  © Charlotte Saintoin/Qobuz

Like wine, music improves with age. And Conor O’Brien’s matures well. From the Malahide coast, where the Irishman composed his first three albums on his farm, to the hubbub of Dublin, the villager has changed his scene. Much like his album. After Becoming a Jackal, Awayland and Darling Arythmetic, three soft pop-folk albums, the songwriter with ice-cube eyes has released The Art Of Pretenting To Swim. O’Brien has read the Pro Tools manual for a shorter album length (44 minutes) and much more elaborate detail. We find simple poems (A Trick Of The Light) where the Irishman sings “We are the dawn, we carry the sun”, while he tells of the conflict between blinding faith and mathematical reason on Ada. With his string arrangements (Ada) which are more reminiscent of The Clientele than Damien Rice, beautiful electro (Real Go-Getter), soul (Long Time Waiting), brass (Love Came With All That It Brings), soft synths (Sweet Saviour) and a warming voice, the opus is addictive and unpretentious. © Charlotte Saintoin/Qobuz
