Fast-rising Brighton ones to watch Lime Garden have announced their hotly-anticipated debut album – produced by Ali Chant (Perfume Genius, PJ Harvey, Yard Act), One More Thing is the culmination of a stellar run of singles and non-stop touring from Lime Garden since their emergence in 2021. In this punchy record, we’re granted exclusive access to the sonic diary of four best friends as they come of age. “I feel like you can hear us growing up in the songs,” says vocalist and rhythm guitarist Chloe Howard. The indie-electro band (completed by Leila Deeley (lead guitar), Tippi Morgan (bass) and Annabel Whittle (drums)) have been making music together since they were 16, releasing since 2020 and garnering support from 6 Music, NME and The Independent. Now is their defining moment – and they’re ready.
“I don’t wanna work my job / ‘cause life is fleeting and I’m a popstar,” proclaims Howard on tongue-in-cheek ‘Popstar’. Many tracks were born from this “double-life” that being in a DIY band dictates. Still, the songs are spirited, humorous and hopeful. Recorded in Bristol, One More Thing came about in quick succession, consequently capturing that urgent, chaotic charm Lime Garden have become known for. With each release, Lime Garden have continued to further their reputation as one of indie’s hottest prospects with a host of tips behind them from NME’s 100, Dork’s Hype List, DIY’s Class of, The Sunday Times Culture’s Breaking Act, and The Independent’s New Sensations. The band also received a glowing endorsement from Paramore’s Hayley Williams on her special Everything Is Emo show on BBC Radio 6 Music.
