VILLAGERS ‘OCCUPY YOUR MIND’: “WRITTEN FOR YOU, YOUR MOTHER, YOUR FATHER AND YOUR GAY BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN RUSSIA”

villagers4Conor O’Brien can’t write a bad song, so here’s the psychedelic “Occupy Your Mind”, a brand new gem from the recently Mercury Music Prize nominated band, Villagers.

The track is produced by James Ford (Arctic Monkeys), released on 31st March and available to download now.

Connor explains: “In the advent of the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, this song was written for you, your mother, your father and your gay brothers and sisters in Russia.”

‘Cos it’s the funniest feeling
So let’s slip inside
Out of this world
Out of this life
‘Cos this place called Home
Is no longer mine
So now I need to occupy your mind

Well there’s a crack in the ceiling
And there’s a hole in the sky
And there’s a government warning
They don’t like our kind
But now it’s three in the morning
And I’m feeling just fine
And I just want to occupy your mind

Our bodies are dancing
Divisions all die
Eye of the beholder
Beholding the eye
And in this infinite space, dear
I can hardly feel time
And I just want to occupy your mind
