Drive away with Little Green Cars (Created August 8, 2013)
Rest assured that Little Green Cars is no circus act. This indie rock band from Dublin, Ireland has charmed the pants off domestic and international fans alike, having toured the U.S. and the UK extensively.
The roots of this five-piece band -- fronted by the duo of Stevie Appleby and Faye O'Rourke -- actually go back to their former band, The Revolts, which was formed in the mid 2000s. By the time the band became Little Green Cars, it was showcasing dynamite percussion and strong vocal harmonies that have drawn comparisons to the likes of Mumford & Sons and The Maccabees. Not bad company, is it?
The official first single from the band, "The John Wayne," served as the appetizer to their debut album, "Absolute Zero." That project, 48 minutes crafted with the aid of seasoned producer Markus Davis, also produced two more singles in "Harper Lee" and "My Love Took Me Down to the River to Silence Me." The former was showcased on NBC's "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" – an appearance that highlighted their ever-growing ambitions.
Now a quintet of 20-year-olds, Little Green Cars has crafted a musical narrative that given them a ton of momentum. Showcases caught the attention of media outlets like NPR and the New York Times, and the band went on to play the 2013 SXSW music festival in Austin, Texas and the Coachella music festival in California. They also recently performed at Lollapalooza, and the band will return to Chicago on October 19 to play at the Metro.
