The newest release from indie-folk band Villagers is “Cecelia & her Selfhood,” a beautifully mellow song that has long been a favorite at the band’s live shows. Simple in structure and sound, “Cecelia” showcases the crisp, romantic vocals of frontman Conor O’Brien in a way that is eerily reminiscent of another Irish crooner, Damien Rice. “They saw me when I stumbled and they watched you help me stand,” O’Brien coos.
The band also released a short film for the track, which “charts the development of a young man as he navigates his way through an impressionistic landscape in search of an elusive monster which is intent on destroying his childhood home.”
