Lime Cordiale

                      Brothers Louis & Oli Leimbach look after the POP side of           Lucky Country Productions Music.

Skills they have picked up from 10 years of pop they now apply to clients scoring film, music clips and commercials.

Better known as Lime Cordiale, the brothers were still in high school when they began writing and playing tunes together in Sydney’s Northern Beaches. It didn’t take long to grow out of the area, and within a couple years, they would play at Bluesfest, Homebake, Peats Ridge and BigSound, tour North America including performances at CMJ and SXSW, as well as playing support slots for Ball Park Music, The Griswolds and The Ruebens among others.

Over time, the pair have crafted and refined a sound to call their own. Debut album ‘Permanent Vacation’ released this year was followed by a nationwide tour, performing many of their new songs live for the first time.  Across twelve tracks, ‘Permanent Vacation’ showcases a unique blend of rock, pop, soul and beyond, drawing influences from The Beatles and Beach Boys to The Strokes and The Growlers. On their new material, Oli and Louis say they “wanted a collection of songs that really have a personality and vibe.  The album is diverse, engaging, colourful and catchy.”

Lime Cordiale perform to sold out audiences throughout Australia, including  Australia’s biggest music conference Bigsound, Bigsound, 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)  Australian tour. (AUS) – Bluesfest Highlights

“Fronted by brothers Oli and Louis Leimbach, 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, international success could is within grasp.”

Sydney Morning Herald (AUS)

“Where Lime Cordiale stand out  among a sea of carefree, upbeat pop bands, is 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) 

“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”
