Brighton indie rock/indie pop/psych band Lime Garden have aired their new single “I Want To Be You“ alongside a video.
The song features on their forthcoming debut album ‘One More Thing‘, produced by Ali Chant (Perfume Genius, PJ Harvey, Yard Act), set to arrive on February 16th through So Young Records. Pre-order your copy here.
Speaking about it, vocalist and rhythm guitarist Chloe Howard said:
““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.”
“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.”
