Video of the Moment #2132: Little Green Cars

Dublin alt-rock quintet Little Green Cars have just unveiled a stylised and symbolic new video for ‘The Garden of Death’, which is the current single from their recent album ‘Ephemera’. Released back in March, ‘Ephemera’ deals mainly with the idea of change and transition in relationships, from endings to new beginnings. “The album could be perceived as melancholic, but that’s not how I see it,” says the band’s co-lead singer Faye O’Rourke. “It’s giving a perspective that people can relate to, but also offering hope because these situations always move on.”

One particular ending, the death of fellow lead singer Stevie Appleby’s grandmother, gave rise to a new beginning in the form of ‘The Garden Of Death’. A stark and haunting guitar melody opens the track, and Appleby’s fragile vocals convey a nearly tangible sense of longing as his lyrical protagonist searches for meaning and closure, both in this life and beyond. The vocal harmonies of the chorus fade out slowly at the end, lending the track a faintly ethereal air, but one that lingers long after the song is over. You can watch the heavily metaphorical video for ‘The Garden of Death’ just below.
