Is music art? NewVillager seem to think it is, if their video for ‘Lighthouse’ is anything to go by. NewVillager are a Brooklyn-via-San Francisco artist collective who seem to actually enjoy creating music, a far cry from some bands you could mention who agonise over every little detail. ‘Lighthouse’ is everything you could want from music: it is uplifting, leaves plenty of things to discover on repeat listens and well, the video is pretty entertaining. NewVillager seem like an obvious extension of Sufjan Stevens, a band you discover and plan to cling onto for life. And it is much more entertaining than Radiohead, right? Download the track below.
