Sydney’s Lime Cordiale have been storming through 2015 off the back of two emphatic single releases, travelling the country like virtual pied pipers, gathering a rabid legion of fans that have made them one of the biggest live acts you’ve never heard.
Born to a musician mother and filmmaker father, Louis and Oli Leimbach grew up on the Northern Beaches’ Scotland Island. The guys are skilled surfers (they even competed over the years) and aside from making music Louis is a stellar artist who creates the bands merch and much more.
With a bachelor in fine art from COFA, Louis works mainly with acrylics and oil’s on canvas, although he has also worked with surfboard shapers creating art on surfboards and doing street art as well. Works are mainly inspired by South American sculpture sand use of colour, street art, 80’s/early 90’s fashion.
The release of their third EP ‘Road to Paradise’ and its lead single ‘Not That Easy’ is set to change all that as the band sheds its sonic apprenticeship and takes full ownership of the zeitgeist they have created.
‘Not that Easy’ is the perfect summer jam, taking the smooth roots-infused pop and electronic stylings their fans have come to love and adding an extra sprinkling of class, a pinch of edge and three large handfuls of hooks.
The band are also making a big statement with their most ambitious run of Australian shows to-date to back up the EP. The Road To Paradise Tour is set to thirteen dates across the country, including separate U18 and 18+ shows at Northcote Social Club in Melbourne, appearances at Soundscape Music Festival and Lost Paradise Festival in NSW, and their biggest venue to-date—an end of year celebration at Sydney’s iconic Metro Theatre.
Inspired by a string of influences from Charles Bradley to Daft Punk to The Roots, Lime Cordiale’s forthcoming EP features brand new track ‘Not That Easy’ alongside previously released tracks ‘Hanging Upside Down’ and ‘Feel Alright’.
Lime Cordiale’s emphatic live show has graced countless local and international stages over the last 18 months across two separate twenty-date tours of North America and in Australia alongside The Delta Riggs (sold out national tour), Ball Park Music, The Griswolds, Dispatch and Cosmo Jarvis.
They have previously sold-out a sizeable list of Sydney venues including the Metro Lair (twice), Newtown Social Club, The Standard and Oxford Art Factory. The band have also performed at numerous Australian festivals over the last eighteen months including Bigsound, Homebake, AWME,Deni Blues, Bluesfest, Caloundra Music Festival and Marmalade Skies.
