Lime Garden, four Brighton-based friends, expose their hearts out in a series of candid, diary-like songs on their debut. Crammed with telling in-jokes and paying homage to the sort of early 2000s indie-era tunes that the quartet grew up obsessing over, they’re indulging their teenage selves and dreaming of escape from mundane 9-5 lives.

It’s not all influenced by others, but some references are transparent, the offset chopping guitars of The Strokes in Love Song or the equally sardonic wit on I Want To Be You and Nepotism (Baby). The album’s light on nostalgia though as they also pay passing homage to Charlie XCX, Caroline Polachek or Japanese House along the way. The band scratches a familiar itch but does it in their own exciting way.
