ARTISTS OF THE MONTH
#1 Lime Cordiale
Track: "Sleeping At Your Door" Location: Sydney, Australia Style: Indie Rock Members:
Tim Fitz Label: Chugg Music
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!
The band is led by brothers Louis and Oli Leimbach who have spent the last year performing at major venues and festivals down under.
They are currently gearing up to release their latest EP Falling Up The Stairs
in North America later this year and have confirmed dates in the U.S. and Canada including in Los Angeles and at SXSW.
Track: "Mesmerise" Location: Kettering, England Style: Alternative/Psychedelic Members:
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.
Track: "There With You" Location: Brisbane, Australia Style: Pop/Rock/Acoustic Members:
Rhian Thomas Label: Unsigned
The duo formed in Queensland, Australia back in 2011 and have recently moved to the U.S. where they've been writing and recording.
They just recorded an acoustic EP titled Me & My Mistakes which features singles "Who You Are" & "There With You."
Highly recommended for fans of Owl City and The Ready Set, The Decoration will get you off your feet and out of your winter funk.
