Lime Cordiale - Sleeping At Your Door

Single review by kev@thesoundofconfusion.co.uk


As is often the case, bands from the other side of the world don't always set up big press campaigns in the UK until they become established at home, or perhaps until the idea takes their fancy. Sydney quintet Lime Cordiale have just released their new EP 'Falling Up The Stairs' down under (we don't think there's a UK release yet, but with the power of the internet you should have no trouble buying a copy to download). We were given our introduction to the band earlier this summer when the EP's lead-track 'Bullshit Aside' landed in our inbox, and it was love at first listen.

With the full five tracks now available, a second single was released to coincide with the EP's arrival, and that single is 'Sleeping At Your Door'. They've done it again. Opening with drums and guitar that could be from an early '60s surf track, Lime Cordiale then take us on a trip through hook-filled guitar-pop with a sizable chorus, a healthy spattering of "wooh-oh-oohs" and generally all of the ingredients that makes this type of thing (call it indie or garage or guitar-pop or whatever you want) work really really well. We smell some more UK attention coming down the line...
