Lime Cordiale today return to the airwaves with their brand-new single ‘Robbery’, which is unveiled alongside the official video.
Hailing from Sydney’s Northern Beaches, the band’s upcoming tour is set to be their biggest New Zealand and Australian tour to date with a string of some 30 headline shows scheduled to kick off at the start of next month, including shows in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
Tickets are flying via www.limecordiale.com.
Of the wildly infectious soul-pop jam ‘Robbery’, Louis Leimbach says “I love the 60’s feel to the song. The whole song could just be a baritone sax and a snare and all the main elements would be there. The song all started with that line: “Hey, there’s been a robbery”. When you meet someone, even just for a moment, they make an impact and then they’re gone. You’re left feeling robbed. You feel as though you need to find them somehow but it’s no use. We played the song at pretty much every show throughout Europe. We slipped it in as a little secret addition, and it felt great even though no one knew what the hell was going on.”
The music video was filmed over seven countries whilst Lime Cordiale were on their recent six-week run of the UK and Europe. In between shows and long drives, the band and their long-time videographer, Jack Shepherd, would find any spare moment they could to race around and filming scenes for the clip. In typical Lime Cordiale fashion, as seen in recent clips for ‘Money’ and ‘Inappropriate Behaviour’, the band superbly play out the starring roles in yet another hilarious plot.
The ‘Robbery’ video follows a broken-hearted Louis Leimbach to some of the most iconic landmarks and vistas across Spain, Ireland, France, England, Netherlands, Belgium and all the way home to Australia as he searches for romance.
The brothers Oli and Louis Leimbach who are responsible for delivering us glorious hook-laden jams such as ‘Inappropriate Behaviour’, ‘Money’ and ‘Dirt Cheap’, which landed at #86 in triple j’s 2018 Hottest 100 and combined boast more than 50 million streams, have been winning over fans all over the world and gaining huge momentum internationally.
In a major boost for their burgeoning international career, it was just announced last that Lime Cordiale have been signed by multi-platinum selling global megastar Post Malone and his manager Dre London to a co-management and label deal with Sydney-based Chugg Music.
London and Malone recently set up a new company together called London Cowboys. Also, having just wrapped up a mammoth six-week run of UK and Europe tour dates, including sold-out headline shows at venues such as O2 Academy London, Paradiso in Amsterdam, the band only just set foot on home soil before they jetted back off to the US to play some more dates in Los Angeles and New York City including the iconic Mercury Lounge next week.
Lime Cordiale will be joined on their NZ tour dates by Kiwi alternative-rock band, Daily J.
