Today Little Green Cars premiered the video for “Easier Day” (on Stereogum), the second single from their sophomore album Ephemera, available March 11 via Glassnote/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company.
The video for “Easier Day” was made by band member Adam O’Regan with the help of actor Hugh O’Conor (The Three Musketeers, Chocolat). “[It] was inspired by the Faye’s opening lyric “I’ve been away for a long time,” says O’Regan, “and it was shot over the course of three days in Tokyo, in the quiet neighbourhood of Hatsudai, the bustling ward of Shinjuku and the dark underbelly of Golden Gai. We wanted to show a very real side of the city, in order to create a believable sense of life. It was important to us that the story is never fully disclosed, just hinted at.”
Ephemera “Is a transitional album,” says frontman Stevie Appleby. “Lyrically, it’s all about change – the end of some eras, new beginnings, learning from the past and looking to the future. Ephemera means things that are important to you, but only for a short time. That could apply to music or relationships or even a particular day.” A dozen exquisitely-crafted, exceptionally-sung, sumptuously-produced songs shimmer with the myriad of emotions the band has been through.
The band will hit the road for a six week North American tour beginning March 23rd in support of the album with three Canadian dates, see below for details.
