The daily cor­po­rate grind got you down? You need Lime Cor­diale. Not the Cot­tee’s green liq­uid kind, the mu­sic. The Syd­ney band de­scribe their mu­sic as chilled Aussie coastal rock, and they’re com­ing to the Gold Coast on Sun­day to pour some sweet, cool tunes into your ears.

“A lot of our songs are about not nec­es­sar­ily giv­ing in to so­cial norms and the pres­sures of so­ci­ety,” lead singer Oli Le­im­bach says.

“You see peo­ple get­ting into jobs they hate. You have to earn the money. Do you though?

“Beach cul­ture is the op­po­site of that, that’s the an­ti­dote. A lot of beach songs are pro­mot­ing an eas­ier life­style.”

And it seems plenty of peo­ple are pick­ing up their re­laxed vibes, with eight sold-out shows on their cur­rent Dirt Cheap tour, and count­ing.

Founded by broth­ers Oli and Louis, Lime Cor­diale has been mak­ing mu­sic to­gether for years, craft­ing their skills and build­ing up a fan base in Aus­tralia and over­seas.

Their most re­cent tour of Amer­ica in­cluded a book­ing at global mu­sic con­fer­ence South By South West in Texas, how­ever get­ting there didn’t quite go as planned.

“The rest of our band didn’t get their visas ap­proved in time,” Oli says.

“We had to ring around ev­ery Aus­tralian band that’s play­ing in Austin, ask who’s a drum­mer that wants to play with us.

“The rest of the tour, Seat­tle, LA, we had to have a dif­fer­ent drum­mer in ev­ery city. It’s amaz­ing know­ing there’s a mu­sic net­work out there that’s got your back.”

With the boys’ strong ties to Aus­tralian cul­ture, Oli says new ex­pe­ri­ences over­seas al­ways in­spire more songs about their home coun­try.

Sin­gle Fol­low­ing Fools, off their de­but al­bum Per­ma­nent Va­ca­tion, was in­spired by Aus­tralia’s toxic mas­culin­ity.

“When you’re trav­el­ling over­seas, you get a bet­ter per­spec­tive in Aus­tralia,” Oli says.

“We love our lives in Aus­tralia, but we’re kind of try­ing to im­prove Aus­tralian cul­ture, there’s some black holes in a few ar­eas.”

On a lighter note, new sin­gle Dirt Cheap is a cruisy take on a con­fus­ing re­la­tion­ship with plenty of an­i­mated mag­pies in the film clip.

The song has made it on to high ro­ta­tion on Triple J af­ter pre­mier­ing on Good Nights pro­gram last month.

“Louis and I, we’ve got match­ing tat­toos, I’ve got a mag­pie, he’s got a kook­aburra,” Oli says.

“This song, it’s a bit of a cheeky song, it doesn’t take it­self too se­ri­ously.

“They gave us a re­ally lovely pre­miere, a re­ally big shout out. That’s just awe­some.”
