Incredibly, album number 4, "The Art of Pretending to Swim" is his best work so far, blending all that is good about the Villagers projects into a sublime album. Highlights include "A Trick of The Light", "Long Time Waiting" and "Love Came With All That It Brings" but to be honest the whole album is majestic. 0 of 0 users found this helpful.

Villagers’ fourth collection finds Conor O’Brien at a transitional point in his career, casting off for pastures anew. Again details how O’Brien has fallen in love with art again, which must mean, in the intervening years between ‘{Awayland}’ and ‘The Art of Pretending To Swim’, not everything has been going swimmingly, creatively or personally, for O’Brien

The ever-productive Irish project have been led back into the studio by songwriter Conor O’Brien, eager to re-connect with the lush palettes of his opening two statements. The Art Of Pretending To Swim' seemingly echoes the palette of those two records, while adding further soulful elements in the process. Lead song 'A Trick Of The Light' is certainly an impressive return, featuring visuals sculpted by Bob Gallagher

After just one listen to this collection, however, all notions of inflatable armbands and blundering through the doggy paddle are drowned out. O’Brien – the chief architect behind the Dublin band – has exhibited an astounding depth of emotional maturity and musical wisdom throughout his career as Villagers, and before that with still-missed art-popsters The Immediate. If this is merely the art of pretending to swim, his podium finish – however far in the future it may be – ought to be truly Olympian. Fri, Sep 14, 2018, 05:00.

Full of sonic sparkles, 'The Art Of Pretending To Swim' feels so light upon your ear as if it were a hamster with a helium balloon keeping it ever-so-gently teetering on the ground. Listen out in particular for the very definite piano on 'Long Time Waiting' which really settles in nicely at the deep end on an album which has plenty of creativity buzzing around the higher reaches. This isn't a batch of three-minute pop songs it's a more measured and patient approach to songwriting, wrapping itself up with emotionally-fuelled closer 'Ada' which leaves you.

The Art Of Pretending To Swim. Always restless and inventive while always true to the power and glory of song-writing and melody, Conor O'Brien has made another great leap forward with Villagers' fourth studio album, The Art Of Pretending To Swim, released by Domino on Friday 21st September. Following the exquisitely sparse, intimate aura of 2015's Darling Arithmetic, O'Brien's new record reconnects with the multi-faceted approach of Villagers' 2010 album debut Becoming A Jackal and 2013's {Awayland} while adding a new-found soulfulness, rhythmic nous and dazzling panoply of sonic detail,.
