The Brighton quartet have just released their new single, ‘Love Song’, and announced details of their highly anticipated debut album – ‘One More Thing’.
Lime Garden have just released their new single, ‘Love Song’, and announced their debut album, One More Thing. Due for release mid February next year via So Young Records, the album was produced by Ali Chant (PJ Harvey, Perfume Genius), and follows an impressive series of singles and a constant stream of live shows. Partly formed in Guildford before eventually settling as both a band and as individuals in Brighton, Lime Garden have been charming audiences since their coming together, and ‘One More Thing’ is emblematic of the confidence that comes with taking your time.
Spearheading their descent toward release day is the album’s lead single, ‘Love Song’, a beautifully balanced sampler of the approaching record. Of the single, Chloe Howard said: “Annabel wrote the tune in her bedroom when she was in a musical slump and had been listening to a lot of Yeah Yeah Yeahs and LCD Soundsystem. We had been trying to write an ‘upbeat’ song for months and finally this appeared”. The blend of “upbeat” and vulnerable boasted by ‘Love Song’ comes with their marrying of indie-rock with elements of electronica, a melding that is absolutely reminiscent of New York giants such as the aforementioned Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
Accompanied by a fun yet twisted visualiser, today, Lime Garden have welcomed in a new era – one that will share with us the fruits of their labour across the last two years – ‘Love Song’ perfectly matches and then advances our impression of Lime Garden so far, no less than a good sign for the project to come.
‘One More Thing’ is out on Feb 16th. Pre order the album here.
