Lime Juice Bring Indie Edge On 'Quietude'
Lime Juice are the freshest name to drop an indie banger. They have a history of releasing indie gems, but this one comes in a whole new different light.
Furthermore, they bring the feel-good here on 'Quietude'. I am sure we all need that right about now with the current situation of Coronavirus. But, this track takes us away from the doom and gloom of the world, especially with its likeable melodies and gritty riffs.
The music is the real selling point for me. I love how the band has brought an indie feel from years before us but blended it into something which sounds hugely current. It is a smart approach, and the singing ability of lead singer 'Alessandro' is hard to criticise. He has a knack for articulating his message well, and he sings with his heart firmly on his sleeve with each word resonating with the masses.
So, what is my pet hate? Well, the track gets going towards the outro when all the instruments come jumping in with a faster tempo. I like the sound which it changes too, but I would have liked to have heard that earlier on. Nevertheless, it does come eventually, and it mixes it up, which is excellent and shows their versatility as an outfit.
Overall, the group have taken huge leaps over the last few years. So much so, they have catapulted out of Italy and are gaining massive traction in the UK and USA. It does not take a genius to figure out why either. They have a unique approach to indie, and they bring what we all want, an indie which feels good and leaves us craving for more.
