  • ‘Hot Scary Summer’ is taken from Villagers’ most recent album Darling Arithmetic – a breathtakingly beautiful, intimate piece of work entirely about love and relationships. Darling Arithmetic is the follow-up to Conor O’Brien’s debut, Becoming a Jackal, and its successor, Awayland – both hugely acclaimed and each nominated for The Mercury Music Prize, the latter winning Ireland’s Choice Music Prize.


  • ALL TVVINS’ first two singles ‘Thank You’ and ‘Too Young To Live’ prompted glowing comparisons with the likes of Haim, Bloc Party and Editors. The Irish duo have now released the new track ‘Darkest Ocean’ and have also confirmed numerous live shows throughout the coming months.

Produced by Matt Schwartz, ‘Darkest Ocean’ highlights ALL TVVINS’ strength in blending immediate pop hooks with driving, 80s-tinged percussion and alt-rock influences. ‘Darkest Ocean’ is available at iTunes and Spotify.

ALL TVVINS consists of two multi-instrumentalists in the shape of Conor Adams (primarily vocals and bass) and Lar Kaye (guitars), who first met on the Dublin underground scene and started working together in the summer of 2013.
