Having discovered Villagers a year or so ago and seen them live I am expecting big things from the second album. This is the third song I've heard from it and I am now a relieved person. 'The Waves' and 'Passing a Message' are completely new directions musically and take some getting used to, whereas this, although also different, is simply stunning. You must watch the Youtube video to get a full flavour of the song's depth. Fingers crossed that the rest of the new album is this good - I probably won't care anyway and still love it!
Have to confess I had never heard of this lot, until a late night car journey and the wistful playlist of Radio Two; this piqued my interest for the band and the album and I haven't been disappointed, they deserve to be huge.
