Villagers are the latest of the new wave of Irish bands who are giving some musical hope at least to a country who's leaders seem determined to drag it down to the morass.
Their new album "Becoming a Jackal" reached number 1 in the Irish Album and Indie Charts, while also being nominated for a Mercury prize, while the band themselves were nominated for a Q award.
I first heard them on Jools Holland on BBC2, and was hooked, particularly to the whimsical "That Day", which is actually their 4th single.
I've worked out my version of the song, and added it to my Rock Songs Guitar Chords page at the Guitarsongs.Info link below.
If you listen to the video ( also below ), the song is actually played in the key of G# ( A flat ), but I've chorded it in the the key of G, and indicated that you should put your capo on the 1st fret to get the correct pitch for the recorded song.
After transposition to G, the chords are a fairly manageable set of G, C, D, E minor, B minor and G/F# ( which is just a transition chord between the G and the E minor and is played: 2xx003 )
