about

Model Village are an Adult-Orientated Pop outfit from the English cities of Cambridge and London. They were formed in 2008 by people otherwise known for their work in Econoline, Fuzzy Lights, Slowgun, Hidden Messages, Hey Colossus, etc. but manage to sound like none these. Instead they're attempting to combine their love of jangly pop like Camera Obscura, the darker side of folk as exemplified by Nina Nastasia and the slick sounds of 'Rumours'-era Fleetwood Mac.

2012 sees the release of the band’s debut album, following an 18 month period that saw them release three singles, get played a bunch of times on BBC 6 Music and XFM, and play gigs with Allo Darlin’, Jeffrey Lewis, Damon & Naomi, Singing Adams, Widowspeak and The Lemonheads, as well as on the main stage at the Indietracks festival.

‘A Solution To Everything’ is Model Village's first full-length release. It's a compilation of tunes collected from singles, splits, compilations, etc. but stands as an album in it's own right, and it's been sequenced as such. With songs about rabbits, John Peel, moving out of London, bad friends and sculptor Josefina de Vasconcellos - as well as a fully-formed, unified philosophy on life and how to live it - the band’s mix of jangly guitars, boy-girl harmonies, upbeat melodies and downbeat lyrics sit somewhere in the niche between Belle & Sebastian and The Promise Ring, if reviewers are to be believed.
