Lime Garden - "I Want to Be You"

A lot of bands have been creating this new world that includes indie rock and pop music lately, and we've been fully on board with the sound. Our latest discovery in the genre is Lime Garden. The Brighton based quartet recently released "I Want to Be You," which is an upbeat and dreamy new song. The song seems to swirl around the listener. It's an undeniably poppy and catchy song, but there's just the slightest edge to it to keep the song from dipping too far into pop. Lime Garden get compared to artists like Wet Leg and Dry Cleaning, but I'm also hearing the lighter side of Mannequin Pussy, too. Right now, Lime Garden are poised to be the next big thing of 2024, but we'll have to wait a little bit to find that out.

Vocalist/rhythm guitarist Chloe Howard says of her band's upcoming album:

“A lot of the songs are about just being kind of miserable. We all have this double life. There’s this incredible journey that we're going on together with the band, but there is also this other side to it that a lot of people don't know about, which is that really boring day-to-day life."

You can watch the video for "I Want to Be You" below. One More Thing is due out February 16 on So Young Records, and is available for pre-order here. For more on Lime Garden, check out the band on Instagram and Facebook.
