Lime Garden’s sophomore album, “One More Thing”, is a refreshing take on indie rock that embraces vulnerability and humor in equal measure. With a sound that harkens back to the early days of indie rock, Lime Garden delivers a collection of tracks that are both heartfelt and laced with wit.

From the opening track “Love Song”, the band sets the tone for the album with lyrics that speak to the complexities of love and relationships. Lead singer Chloe Howard’s vocals radiate with a sense of longing and sincerity, drawing listeners in with her raw emotion. The following tracks “Mother” and “Nepotism (baby)” continue this theme of introspection and self-awareness, each song offering a glimpse into the band’s inner thoughts and experiences.

One of the standout tracks on the album is “Pop Star”, a tongue-in-cheek commentary on the music industry and the pitfalls of fame. The band’s use of autotune adds an extra layer of irony to the lyrics, highlighting their self-awareness and refusal to conform to industry standards. This track, like the rest of the album, showcases Lime Garden’s ability to blend humor with poignant observation, creating a unique and engaging listening experience.

Overall, “One More Thing” is a strong effort from Lime Garden, showcasing their talent and creativity in equal measure. While the sound may not be groundbreaking or revolutionary, the band’s authenticity and charm shine through in every track. Fans of classic indie rock will find much to enjoy in this album, as Lime Garden proves that sometimes it’s the tried and true formulas that resonate the most.
