Career[edit]

2009–2016: Early EPs[edit]

Lime Cordiale formed in the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Australia in September 2009[4] and consisted of brothers Oliver Leimbach and Louis Leimbach, Brendan Champion and James Jennings. The group came about after they recognised their mutual love of all things pop and their desire to create original and exciting music. They began to perform gigs around Sydney[5]

After spotting them at a band competition, Icehouse frontman, Iva Davies promptly made contact and a mentoring partnership began with Iva and the band heading to the studio to produce some tracks. In 2011 Lime Cordiale supported Icehouse, on their comeback tour of 2011.[5] In 2011, the duo released three singles via Bandcamp and played over 60 live shows.[5]

In July 2012, Lime Cordiale released their debut extended play Faceless Cat, which included the single "Pretty Girl".[6]

In 2013, Lime Cordiale released their second extended play Falling Up the Stairs which included the singles "Bullshit Aside" and "Sleeping At Your Door". The EP was produced by Daniel Denholm.[4]

In 2015, they released three singles and in November 2015, released their third extended play Road to Paradise.

2017–present: Permanent Vacation and 14 Steps to a Better You[edit]

In August 2017, Lime Cordiale released "Temper Temper", the lead single from their debut studio album, which was released in October 2017, titled Permanent Vacation,[7] which was produced by Dave Hammer.[8] Permanent Vacation peaked at number 79 on the ARIA charts.

In January 2019, their single "Dirt Cheap" placed 86th on the Triple J Hottest 100, 2018.[9]

In February 2019, they released the single "Money".[10]

In September 2019, they released the single "Robbery", a song about "chasing after a girl who has stolen your heart". This came alongside the news of a national tour to support the release.[12]

In January 2020, they had four songs in the Triple J Hottest 100, 2019, with "Robbery" placing at number 7.[13]
