Villagers: Hot Scary Summer

Over the past six years, French music publication La Blogothèque has become known around the world for their spontaneous single-shot Take Away Shows. The series sees musicians performing acoustically, often wandering around a picturesque part of Paris. Their latest features Villagers frontman Conor O’Brien performing “Hot Scary Summer” in Chapelle Expiatoire, a chapel dedicated to Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. Startlingly intimate, yet with grand cinematic drama thanks to the location, La Blogothèque once again brings out the best in a musician by adding the least.
