New Release: Villagers Remix St. Etienne’s Magpie Eyes

St. Etienne’s new record Home Counties is due next week on June 2nd, and following the release of their latest single Magpie Eyes, they’ve allowed Villagers’ Conor O’Brien to put his remixing hat on and take it to new and exciting levels

St. Etienne’s Pete Wiggs says about the remix, “Conor takes the song in unexpected directions, and I love where he’s going – it’s a mix of two halves with spaced out dubwise electronic explorations leading to a killer bass riff. New Villagers material eagerly awaited!”

Have a listen below, but take note this is not exactly folk – you have been warned! (It is lovely though)…

Wiggs isn’t the only one eager for new Villagers material, but for now, we recommend giving a listen to his recent collaboration with acclaimed composer Nico Muhly. This beautiful, haunting track titled Fortunate Child was recorded in New York earlier this year, for the show This Ain’t No Disco and the video features footage shot by Donal Dineen whilst they were in New York
