Lime Cordiale are a Sydney based quartet who grew out of the Northern Beaches music scene. Consisting of brothers Oli and Louis Leimbach, Brendan Champion and James Jennings, the group came about after the boys recognised their mutual love of all things pop and their desire to create original and exciting music. Drawing from their classically trained background and experiences from their awkward teenage years, Lime Cordiale strives to create strong pop music with a fresh sound. At first the music seems to span a wide range of genres, but it soon becomes apparent that Lime Cordiale has created a distinct sound and strong style that belongs to this band alone.
Lime Cordiale toured extensively in 2014 with the release of their acclaimed Falling Up The Stairs EP including two successful trips to North America. Standout single ‘Sleeping At Your Door’ turned heads in America, achieving #9 Most Added track on the CMJ College Radio Charts in March.
Off the road for a couple of months, having completed two twenty-date tours of the USA, and a three city Australian tour, Lime Cordiale are currently in ALBERTS’ studio, recording new material with Sydney-based producer Jean Paul-Fung (Jinja Safari, Art Vs. Science, Glass Towers).
To coincide with the release of Falling Up The Stairs at the start of 2014, Lime Cordiale were picked as one of a small handful of Australian acts to showcase at SXSW Music Festival in Austin, TX in March. Their emphatic live set drew undeniable praise from a number of US tastemakers, with the likes of Zimbio, Buzznet, CMJ.com and SXSW.com featuring the band over the course of the festival.
The last twelve months have seen Lime Cordiale perform to receptive audiences throughout Australia, including sold-out headline shows at The Standard (600 cap) and Oxford Art Factory (450 cap) in Sydney, well received festival sets at Australia’s biggest music conference Bigsound 2013, Bigsound 2014, Homebake, Peats Ridge, Deni Blues and Bluesfest, and gigs alongside the likes of The Rubens, The Specials (UK), Ball Park Music, The Griswolds and as main support on Cosmo Jarvis’ (UK) 2013 Australian tour.
TheMusic.com.au (AUS) - Bluesfest 2014 Highlight
“Fronted by brothers Oli and Louis Limebach, Lime Cordiale were too much fun. [The band] have built themselves a fresh sound and a growing audience, and with Chugg Music launching in North America this year international success could be within grasp.”
Sydney Morning Herald (AUS)
“Where [Lime Cordiale] stand out though, among a sea of carefree, upbeat pop bands, is in their ability to write some of the most memorable and melodic hooks this side of Abbey Road. Beach Boys, eat your heart out.”
The Music (AUS)
“I am immediately, and somewhat surprisingly, taken by these tunes. One of the finds of Bigsound week I’d say – keep your eyes peeled, this is good stuff.”
Lobos en Lobos (USA) - Top Songs of 2013
“By far one of the best indie-rock sounds we have featured this year. From the lead vocals to the beating pulse of the drums, the band’s music just reeks with energy and authenticity.”
A Music Blog, Yea? (CAN)
“There is a certain magic in the way this band utilises their instruments, and if you listen carefully, you’ll realise that it’s quite simple: this band hides nothing behind their sound. Their lyrics are honest and their vocals pure in execution.”
The Brag (AUS)
“Lime Cordiale provoked bellowing applause as they left the stage, the kind of applause that makes your plastic cup of poison vibrate gleefully.”
4 Stars – Dave Ruby Howe, Triple J
“A knock-out punch of fun… a nimble and full-sounding tune that is hard to shake.”
Aussie Playlist (AUS)
“An indie pop masterpiece that is melodic and charming without losing that kick of attitude that makes a song truly addictive”
Me And All My Friends (AUS)
“Easily one of the catchiest tracks to come out of [Sydney] in a fair while”
