Dublin five piece Little Green Cars today announce the release of their highly anticipated debut album, 'Absolute Zero' - out on 13th May through Island/Glassnote Records.
A sum of it's creators' ascent to this moment, 'Absolute Zero' is a bewitching set of songs; ruthlessly truthful in their narratives and breathtakingly beautiful in their musical composition. As equally epic as they are intimate, the tracks act as a soul bearing report on the act of growing up.
"This record constantly jumps between two contrasting perspectives: the beauty of a reckless youth and the fear and confusion caused by our ever-pending adulthood," says lead-singer Stevie Appleby.
"It's a hopeful and naïve look at love and life in general but also deals with isolation, unrequited love and madness. We wanted to express both a feeling of strength and vulnerability, so the work had to encompass both the light and dark."
The album is produced by critically lauded producer Markus Dravs who's credits include Arcade Fire's 'Neon Bible' and 'The Suburbs', Coldplay's 'Mylo Xyloto' and Mumford and Son's 'Sigh No More' and 'Babel'.
The band ended 2012 on a high after their stunning debut single 'The John Wayne' created a big stir upon release, receiving widespread critical acclaim which resulted in an inclusion on the BBC Sound of 2013 Longlist. The band are set to release a captivating EP crafted around their brand new single 'Harper Lee' on 4th March through Island Records/Glassnote Records.
The band also recently announced a small number of eagerly-awaited UK shows; they will play at Hoxton Hall in London on 26th February, the Soup Kitchen in Manchester on 27th February and at the Louisiana in Bristol on 28th February.
