New single from Little Green Cars plus a free download

Dublin’s youthful experimental rock exponents, Little Green Cars release new single ‘The John Wayne’ accompanied by B-side ‘Glass Case’ on July 25th via Young and Lost Club. The label is renowned for early releases from the likes of Bombay Bicycle Club, Noah and the Whale and Everything Everything.

Produced by David Kosten (Everything Everything, The Guillemots and Bat for Lashes), ‘The John Wayne is an impressive introduction to the band whose blend of eccentricity and accessibility is a sound of uncommon and uncharted depth. ‘The John Wayne’ is a rhapsodic love song dedicated to both a beautiful American teen and a makeshift drum kit. After a failed attempt to gain entry to a nightclub and win the affection of his American dream, Stevie returned home to make a song about it. Sound restrictions in his building meant drums were out, so he recreated a drum kit out of cups, pans and called the drum kit ‘The John Wayne’ a reference to cult classic ‘The Quiet Man’ starring John Wayne.
The multi-voiced, elemental chorus is layered like the Mamas and the Papas singing for their lives, and gives the impression of a young band wonderfully uninterested in the latest zeitgeist sounds.

B-Side ‘Glass Case’ further highlights the bands skill for crafting challenging and intricate compositions, as it threads together minimal guitar lines with complex percussion and the urgent, impassioned vocals of blue eyed youth.
