Today, fast-rising Irish pop-rock band Walking On Cars released a video for their latest single “Coldest Water,” taken from the band’s upcoming album Colours. A song that’s as deeply personal as it is instantly catchy, lyrically, “Coldest Water” reflects singer Patrick Sheehy’s relationship with alcohol, something he has never spoken about previously because, Sheehy says, “I wanted the music to do the talking and it was all a bit too fresh to be honest”. The song captures Sheehy’s split mind: on one hand, wanting to stay clean and sober, but on the other wanting to sabotage it all. The video is an eccentric whirlwind of emotions through a range of scenes from a hauntingly, dark funeral to a lively party. The band will release their sophomore album Colours on April 12th via Virgin EMI/Play Nice. Recorded between the band’s own home studio in Ireland, London’s legendary RAK studios, and Angelic Studios, where The 1975 also made their latest, Colours is kaleidoscopically rich with sounds, emotions, synth-rock imagination and the brilliant songwriting synonymous with the band’s previous releases. You can pre-order Colours here and watch the video for “Coldest Water” here.

Walking On Cars say of the new video:

“Coldest Water is the most bizarre video we’ve ever done. The contrast from scene to scene is intentionally fanciful. From a rave to funeral, from a fox to a fencing match. We love the randomness of it.

It felt like the right time to put faces to the music. We tend to play more withdrawn roles in our videos so we consciously threw ourselves into this one. Enjoy!”

Formed in 2010 by childhood friends Patrick Sheehy (vocals), Sorcha Durham (keyboards), Paul Flannery (bass) and Evan Hadnett (drums), Walking On Cars realized they were on to something with the release of their debut EP, As We Fly South. Having released the EP independently, the band’s first single “Catch Me If You Can” quickly caught on landing at No.27 on the Irish Charts. Paired with a heavy touring schedule, the band began to grab the attention of labels and signed to Virgin EMI, releasing their debut album Everything This Way in January 2016. The album went on to sell a hefty 325,000 copies worldwide with leading single “Speeding Cars” quickly blowing up and currently sitting at over 60 million plays on Spotify alone. Over 18 months of touring they sold 100,000 gig tickets, reaching arena level in Ireland and selling out tours across Europe, as well as hitting the mains stages of some of the biggest festivals out there, including Isle of Wight, Rock Werchter, Rock Am Ring and Electric Picnic in 2018. After a few struggles caused setbacks in the writing process, they’ve come out stronger, and ready to attack 2019 with a new album and new lease of life. The result is Colours, an ambitious nine-track album that takes Walking On Cars out of their comfort zone and into a more experimental route, proving to themselves and their fans that anything is possible.
