Villagers – I Want What I Don’t Need

Conor O’Brien of Villagers has released “I Want What I Don’t Need,” an orchestral pop folk anthem that delves into the human psyche with its intimate lyricism and delicate instrumentation. Released by Domino Recording Co, this track marks the third single from his upcoming album, exploring themes of free will, the commodification of sacred things, and the pervasive influence of modern technology on our spiritual and intellectual lives.

The song serves as a gentle yet profound meditation on the ironies of human desire and intellectual humility. O’Brien’s lyrics, “And I’ll wed myself to my beliefs / And they’ll harden like my arteries / And I’ll take myself so seriously / And I’ll want what I don’t need,” reflect a tragicomic realization of our often misguided quests for meaning in a commodified world.

The accompanying lyric video enhances the song’s themes, presenting the lyrics against a backdrop of visually stirring imagery that invites viewers to ponder the profound while enjoying the melodic flow of the music. This juxtaposition creates a multi-sensory experience that underscores Villagers’ knack for crafting songs that are not only musically engaging but also intellectually and emotionally resonant.

As “I Want What I Don’t Need” joins the pantheon of Villagers’ thoughtful and evocative works, it promises to be a cornerstone of the forthcoming album, “That Golden Time,” which is poised to offer listeners a deeply reflective musical journey.
