Appleby: Great to have recognition

Alt-folk band Little Green Cars don't want to dwell on the fact they're been hailed as ripe for success.

The Dublin band, who release their debut album this month, have been tipped to take off this year.

Vocalist Stevie Appleby said: "It's obviously great that loads of people like our music, but for us it's best not to think about it too much, it'd mess with our brains.

"It's great to have some recognition though, and for people to listen to our songs - that's why we wrote them, for other people to hear them. If one person out of 100 hears it and it makes their day, that's an amazing reward."

The band hooked up with producer Markus Dravs on the album, who previously worked with Arcade Fire and Mumford And Sons.

Stevie said: "He heard a song of ours and called us. We didn't have much money either but he thought it was worth doing anyway.

"I think confidence was the main thing he gave us. He knows so much, and really liked what we were doing, so that really gave us a lift."

:: Little Green Cars release their debut album, Absolute Zero, on May 13, and begin a UK tour on May 16 as part of The Great Escape in Brighton.
