Brighton quartet Lime Garden have today shared their new single ‘I Want To Be You’ from forthcoming debut album ‘One More Thing’, out February 16th via So Young Records.
Speaking about ‘I Want To Be You’, Lime Garden’s Chloe Howard says: “‘I Want To Be You’ was inspired by a very specific memory I have as a 14 year old at my first gig looking at the band playing and thinking, “do I want to be you or be with you, or do I want both?”. This feeling has continued to raise its head on many occasions in my life, and it’s become quite an obsessive process at times. Growing up with social media and the constant ability to follow your idols, with access into ‘their world’, has fuelled this in an unhealthy way.
Howard continues: “I’m the type of person who can get very deep into something, but now I try to channel that into something more constructive and real, like music and art. Recording this song was an attempt to emulate the feeling of true obsession through sound.”
Coinciding with the new single release, Lime Garden have also announced a headline European tour which sees them perform at Vida Showcase in Barcelona and Motel Mozaique in Rotterdam next spring. Before that, the group will embark on their biggest UK headline tour to date, commencing February 27th at YES (Pink Room) in Manchester and culminating with a hometown show at Chalk in Brighton on March 8th.
