‘The John Wayne’ – An Illustrated Video by Little Green Cars

Little Green Cars

If there’s one band that’s poised to break out in 2013, it’s Dublin’s Little Green Cars. Already named ones to watch by XFM, Virgin Music, and by BBC’s annual Sound Poll, their album is due stateside on March 26, along with a string of US tour dates and a SXSW debut. I don’t know if it’s the five-part harmonies, driving guitars, dramatic crescendos, or the simple yet powerful lyrics of their single, The John Wayne, but there’s magic being conjured here. What’s more, the song includes two arresting videos. While I highly recommend checking out the official video, I’m taken with the artwork version featuring the work of illustrator Peter Strain. Who knew the Lone Ranger hung out with amorous plushies?
