Lime Cordiale swagger in at the start of their new single; jagged and strutting bass line accompanying stomping drums and gyrating vocals. To say they sound confident is an overstatement. It comes as a surprise when that chorus comes in though. The tempo change heralds bold, summery horn sections and rip-roaring melodies that break away from the relatively slow interspersed verses. It’s a smack to the face as it comes out of nowhere.
“Hanging upside down” is the first single to be released from their recent recording sessions with producer, Jean Paul-Fung (Jinji Safari). The track follows-on from the band’s sophomore EP, Falling Up The Stairs, which received a release in North America in February; drawing undeniable praise from global tastemakers including CMJ and SXSW in the process.
The five-piece, who are based in Sydney’s northern beaches, have previously sold-out local venues including The Standard and Oxford Art Factory and performed at countless festivals including Bigsound, Homebake, Peats Ridge, Deni Blues, Bluesfest, and SXSW Music Festival in Austin, TX.
