2007 release. Every kid knows Little Cow in Hungary. There is a very popular animation series with this little yellow cow figure. This release was thought up and produced by László Kollár, Little Cow's frontman and mastermind. He also composed a few songs for the films, which became very popular. So he gathered some of Budapest's best musicians and the band Little Cow (in Hungarian -- Kistehén) was born. The group -- as it is now -- was formed in 2005 and that was also the year of the incredible Hungarian success of their song "Cyber Boy." Thanks to this, they were invited to festivals, village days, town cultural celebrations and TV shows -- and in the meantime have grown into a great live band. By 2006, they became one of Hungary's most popular bands and have played major festivals and big cultural events. The song "Cyber Boy" and its video (included here) made the band well-known and popular in Hungary. The clip was distributed through e-mail and internet by fans. No commercial channels wanted to play the song (apparently, it was too alternative) or the clip (which cost about 1,000 Euros to make), and it had a marketing budget of zero -- but the whole country was singing the song all year. The album went gold in Hungary in August 2006. "Cyber Boy" broke the ringtone records and the clip became #1 on the video chart of Hungarian VIVA television. The song was eventually chosen by the audience as "Song Of The Year" in Hungary at the Fonogram Awards. Their second beautiful video "Virágok A Réten" (also included here) was made together with members of the gypsy band Romano Drom. In Hungary the band call their music the "cultural wedding sound" -- which sounds strange in English, as well as in Hungarian. They also refer to it as crazy listening or "Village Beatles." Little Cow handle genres and rhythms as they wish -- gypsy, Balkan, rock, ska, pop, brass, and dance rhythms are all mixed and matched. The music and the words are fun -- simple and naive, but not necessarily light-hearted. These are timeless tunes somewhere between melancholy and joy.
