5 Songs That Reveal the ‘True Colours’ of Walking on Cars

Formed in 2010 in Dingle, Co Kerry the rock/pop/indie quartet Walking on Cars and comprises band members Patrick Sheehy, Sorcha Durham, Paul Flannery and Evan Hadnett.

The debut EP As We Fly South was released in 2013 and was quickly followed up with a second EP release Hand in Hand. Their first long player Everything This Way was released in 2016 and spent time at the Number 1 slot in the Irish Album Charts.

Colours is their second album and was released in early 2019. Walking on Cars descend into town to play a much anticipated show on 21st May at the Waterfront Hall in Belfast. These are 5 song that will show you the band’s ‘True Colours’.


The opening track on the new album and it would be no surprise if it is the show opener in Belfast. It mixes a heavy beat, carrying the weight of pain of a broken relationship, and the calming vibes of being yourself again. A hugely strong first track on Colours which proves to be just the start of a journey.

Two Straight Lines

What is it about this song that demands your attention. Without a doubt it is the heavy driven electro Jack Garratt-esque guitar riff that sits parallel to Patrick Sheehy’s vocal of the Two Straight Lines lyric. Perfect and for this reason alone you should listen to this song.

Catch Me If You Can

The opening number on the band’s debut album and, without a doubt, just a pure pop song. One of those songs you will like on the very first listen and never tire of no matter how many times you hear it. It’s that simple.

Don’t Mind Me

It has a trademark Walking on Cars piano intro. A meaningful song but it is the drumbeat, which you will air drum along to, that carries this song and makes it something you will just want to lose yourself in.

It’s a track that tells you everything you need to know about the band without having to use any words to describe them.

Speeding Cars

The song that hides a secret. With it’s rolling lyrical feel about how things could be but it ultimately ends with just another broken dream. The ‘Heya’ singalong will hook you in every single time and there is no doubting this song will prove to be a favourite to the Belfast show.
