Dinked 118 is the fifth album from Irish indie-folk legends Villagers! Fever Dreams is released on August 20th by Domino.
Following 2018’s fantastic The Art Of Pretending To Swim, Conor O’Brien set about writing an album that, in his own words, ‘was as generous to the listener as it was to myself’. Written over 2 years and recorded mainly in late 2019 and early 2020, inspiration for Fever Dreams was found everywhere from the writings of Audre Lord to the films of David Lynch, via classic jazz and library music, all filtered through Villagers’ signature widescreen cinematic vision. This is music to escape into – dreamlike in form with incredible depth to get lost in.
