Sydney’s five-piece outfit Lime Cordiale are gearing up for an ambitious run of Australian shows to celebrate the release of their third EP, Road To Paradise.
The band is well known for its roots-infused electronic pop, from past EP endeavours Falling Up the Stairs (2013) and Faceless Cats (2012) and they’ve yet to disappoint on this front. Their forthcoming EP features brand new single, ‘Not That Easy’ alongside previously released tracks ‘Hanging Upside Down’ and ‘Feel Alright’, which were both dropped earlier this year.
‘Not That Easy’ is the perfect soundtrack to summer, with its thumping beats and clever hooks reeling you in, making it next to impossible not to dance along with the track. Its raucous instrumentation steadily builds until it hits the chorus like a freight train. The accompanying lyrics, “Take back my old life, back down cause you’re running me dry, I know, I know it’s not that easy…” suggests a romantic entanglement that ended badly. All-in-all it’s brassy, classy, and loads of fun, leaving us in no doubt of the band’s musical prowess.
Lime Cordiale’s decision to embark on a nation-wide tour comes from an already hectic previous year. Over the last 18 months, the band has graced countless local and international stages, with two separate North American tours and Australian gigs supporting the likes of The Delta Riggs, Ball Park Music, The Griswolds, Dispatch and Cosmo Jarvis. The Road To Paradise tour is to date their most impressive number of shows with 13 dates scheduled across the country, including separate Under 18 and 18+ shows at Northcote Social Club in Melbourne, and appearances at the Soundscape Music Festival and NSW’s Lost Paradise Festival.
If the three recent singles are anything to go by, we’re all going to be in for a massive treat, once they take their show on the road. Lime Cordiale’s EP Road To Paradise will be available in November via Chugg Music/ MGM. Tickets for the band’s shows are on sale now. Check out their Facebook page for more details.
