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.
