    Oliver Leimbach
    Louis Leimbach
    James Jennings

    Lime Cordiale are one of the hottest Australian bands buzzing right now. They're sound is fun, quirky, upbeat and will likely make you want to grab your board and hit the surf--even in February!

    Temples #2 Temples

    Style: Alternative/Psychedelic
    Members:
    James Bagshaw
    Thomas Warmsley
    Adam Smith
    Samuel Toms
    Label: Heavenly Recordings




    Temples come highly recommended from Noel Gallagher of Oasis and Johnny Marr of The Smiths who consider them "the best new band in Britain." If that weren't enough, the band recorded and produced their debut album Sun Structures themselves and have supported acts including Suede, Mystery Jets, and The Vaccines. If you're a fan of young, edgy musicians paying homage to 70s rock with a modern voice, Temples are worth keeping both eyes on.
