History

In 2010, the five school friends started performing at local venues and clubs in their hometown of Dingle, County Kerry. Committing wholly to their musical ambitions, the band went on to rent a house in the Dingle Peninsula and lock themselves away for the purpose of writing and recording demos. "The place we rented was a really old cottage, where we had no television, no phone, no Internet, no transport,” says Sorcha, “We were there for 6 months – just our equipment and us. It was an amazing time, ideas were constantly flowing.”

In 2012, Walking on Cars won the Redbull Bedroom Jam 2012 competition and gained extensive radio play with their debut single "Catch Me If You Can". As a result, the track reached no. 27 in the Irish Charts, where it remained for over 20 weeks, drawing national attention to the band. "Catch Me If You Can" also reached No.1 on iTunes, and garnered over 450,000 views on YouTube. "Two Stones", the band’s second single, reached No.12 in the Irish charts, while YouTube views exceeded 1,000,000.

Walking on Cars released their four-song EP, As We Fly South, in 2013. It was recorded in Attica Studios, Donegal, and produced by Tom McFall (R.E.M, Snow Patrol, Bloc Party, Editors). In July 2014, the band released "Hand in Hand" and "Always Be With You".

In 2016, they released their first full-length album, Everything This Way, celebrating the release with CD signings and in-store performances all around Ireland.
