LITTLE GREEN CARS FIRING ON ALL CYLINDERS.
Taking its title from a poem by W.B. Yeats, Ephemera – the second album by Little Green Cars – is all about change. Lyrically, and in some respects musically, it explores the idea of endings (usually sad ones) and new beginnings (occasionally optimistic). Thus, the Dublin quintet’s second collection feels like an unashamedly wistful, sometimes heartsick and ultimately compelling offering.
It was written on the road, and although it’s dark in places, it is never mawkish. Fiercely radio friendly, in the best sense, it may well be the vehicle that sends them rocketing to the stars. But there is also intellectual heft in the songwriting.
