When The Immediate called it a day in 2006, Conor O' Brien threw himself into touring duties with Cathy Davey providing backing vocals and guitar for her live shows. Conor continued to write music all along and in February 2009 he released his debut EP Hollow Kind under the name Villagers on a small Dublin label Any Other City. Villagers spent most of 2009 touring - highlights include Electric Picnic, headlining a night at the HWCH festival and playing support to Bell X1 and Neil Young. Villagers released a new single On A Sunlit Stage in October 2009 and shortly afterwards, it was announced that they had signed a deal with Domino Records. Conor is currently recording his debut album which Domino plan to release in 2010. Postcard from Villagers? mouseover to read
