Indie pop trio, Liimo, premiere their their debut single, “Pineapple Radio” today on EUPHORIA Magazine. The track – a breathy, euphoric synth bop – is released through B-Unique Records.
Whilst the warm, buttery melody might make you yearn for summer days, Liimo have said the track is about encapsulating a world they experienced in their hometown of Edinburgh. “All these upper-class dames and their porn star names / yeah they’re putting me to shame / Well I’ll rather get low with my girl and get stoned / to Pineapple Radio” the band’s frontman, Kieran, sings dreamily on the chorus.
Speaking about the single, Liimo said; “It’s one of the most honest tracks that we’ve written and we can’t wait to get it out there, the song is about withdrawing from the highs for a little dose of what really matters.”
As for the band’s moniker, Kieran says Liimo is an abbreviation of ‘little more’. “The thread between our lyrics is that we aspire for a touch more of everything; a little bit more time, a little bit more money, a little more indulgence, a little more love. Sometimes these things aren’t the answer, but we’d sure like to try it out ourselves,” he says.
The trio, comprised of Kieran, CJ and Jamo, met as teenagers in Edinburgh, however, things only started clicking creatively when they moved down to London. “There’s an authenticity writing together because there’s a collective pool of memories to pick up on and pull influence from,” Kieran says. “Our lyrics are about real life, being broke, love in a big city with the romanticism of warm nights far away.”
On first listen, the band have a sound reminiscent of a less-heartbroken LANY, but their lyrics are equally sure to get stuck in your head.
As the song itself says: “Play it again, play it again…”
