Album artwork for Sick and Tired by Lime Garden

Fast-rising Brighton newcomers Lime Garden release their new single Sick and Tired on So Young Records - the exciting new label from the founders of So Young Magazine.

Coming originally from a place of loneliness and fear for the future, new single Sick and Tired pivots to an uplifting and somewhat coming of age spin on modern anxieties surrounding going into adulthood. Singer and co-songwriter Chloe Howard explains: “Writing the song helped us find the beauties all around us, even when we were feeling stuck in a rut. The song writing process began when we were split miles apart due to the various lockdowns, meaning this song came from a completely new way of writing for us. Sending logic files back and forth, piecing together the song bit by bit, made it feel like a collaborative being that we were all looking after to help grow, this is also true in the fact that you can hear a little bit of each of us throughout the song. We feel it's the perfect reflection on how we have grown as a band to be inspired by each other's writing and influences.” Inspired musically by the likes of LCD Soundsystem and melodically by toplines from Caroline Polachek the song shows a softer, more open side to the band.

Lime Garden are a four-piece band jumping over genre boundaries to create a sound that is uplifting yet somehow laid-back. They achieve this neat trick by harnessing catchy melodies and earworm hooks into an almost nonchalant net of lo-fi sounds, which is then sprinkled with a dry-wit to bring their world to life. It's a world of late-night conversations and observations that strike a chord. The band came together via a twist of fate when Chloe Howard and Annabel Whittle, friends on social media, found out they'd just enrolled at the same college. Here they met Leila Deeley and the three bonded over a love of Talking Heads, the lyrics of Courtney Barnett and the flourishing UK underground gigging scene, along with note taking trips to gigs at the Boileroom in Guildford.

Cascading with the band’s signature kaleidoscopic vocals and effervescent soundscape, Sick and Tired unveils a pop gem.
