Gearing up for their biggest ever Australian tour this October, Lime Cordiale have unveiled the official video for new single No Plans to Make Plans via Chugg Music. A visually vintage jaunt, the Leimbach brothers – accompanied by Summer Kane – go up against their alternate, evil selves ‘Oscar and Leroy Slimebach’ in the clip, directed by long-standing Cordiale collaborator Tim Swallow. Joined by their live band members James Jennings, Nick Polovineo and Felix Bornholdt, the performance packs all the safari-suited swagger we could hope for (and includes the best wazoo interlude we’ve heard in a while).
The video brings home the wake-up slap of a message to self-absorbed types who act like they fight for what’s right, but only make a difference in their head : “You’re making a stand, but not standing up.” The track grooves along like a cruisy afternoon around a motel pool; catchy and clever. It is a message with meaning, wrapped in sustainable fashion.
“No Plans to Make Plans was never intended to be a single when we released the album. Our audience grabbed a hold of it and it somehow turned into a single on its own.” – Oli Leimbach
Hailing from Sydney’s Northern Beaches, Lime Cordiale have had an incredible year. Their second album 14 Steps To A Better You topped the ARIA Album Chart on release last July (also receiving eight ARIA Award nominations), making them the most-nominated act of 2020 and landing them a debut ARIA Award for Best Breakthrough Artist. With millions of music streams and growing, the band is on a fast rise. They’ve supported Tones & I across North America, and in 2019 played to over 30,000 fans around Australia alone.
