"In the advent of the 2014 Olympics in Sochi..."

This year's Winter Olympics have been beset by controversy.

Held in the Russian city of Sochi, the games follow in the wake of anti-homosexual legislation in the country, which has arguably fuelled hate crimes against the nation's LGBT community.

Noting this, Villagers has decided to pen a song in their honour. Conor O'Brien has drafted one of his most driven, powerful statements yet, one which matches astute songwriting to clipped, electronic influenced production from James Ford.

Here's a note from O'Brien: "In the advent of the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, please find attached a song written for you, your mother, your father and your gay brothers and sisters in Russia."
