Don’t Miss Little Green Cars Tonight at Music Hall (Seriously)

March 26th, 2013

They’re barely out of their teens, but the five members of Dublin’s Little Green Cars—Stevie Appleby (vocals and guitar), Faye O’Rourke (vocals and guitar), Dylan Lynch (drums and vocals), Adam O’Regan (guitar and vocals) and Donagh Seaver O’Leary (bass and vocals)—have already been making music together for five years, a lively brand of folk-tinged rock filled with five-part harmonies and stirring melodies. But it’s an urban brand of roots rock, according to The Guardian, “more Brooklyn than Nashville or Texas.” Their debut album, Absolute Zero, arrives this summer on Glassnote, home to Mumford & Sons, Phoenix and Two Door Cinema Club. But you don’t need to wait that long to hear some of their new tunes because Little Green Cars (above, doing a soaring a cappella version of “Red” for The Bowery Presents Live) play Music Hall of Williamsburg tonight.

(Watch an interview with Little Green Cars and see them perform “The Consequences of Not Sleeping” exclusively for The Bowery Presents Live.)

Little Green Cars Are a Band on the Verge

January 18th, 2013

Little Green Cars make lively folk rock heavy on the harmonies. Their debut album, Absolute Zero, arrives in March via Glassnote Records, home to Mumford & Sons and Two Door Cinema Club. And with this soaring a cappella rendition of “Red” at the Tibet House in Chelsea, it’s clear the Dublin five-piece is poised for bigger things.

In an interview, also filmed at the Tibet House, Stevie Appleby and Faye O’Rourke reminisce about the band’s beginnings, their childhood influences and why writing happy music is a challenge.

Little Green Cars Are Ireland’s Next Big Thing

November 6th, 2012

They’re each just 20 years old, but the five members of Dublin’s Little Green Cars have already been making music together for five years, a brand of folk-tinged rock filled with layered harmonies and stirring melodies. But it’s an urban brand of roots rock, according to The Guardian, “more Brooklyn than Nashville or Texas.” Watch their acoustic version of “The Consequences of Not Sleeping” done exclusively for The Bowery Presents Live channel on YouTube. Their debut album will arrive in early 2013 via Glassnote, the label that brought us Mumford & Sons, Two Door Cinema Club and the Temper Trap.
