Lemonade Shoelace aims to load up the senses with colour, rich melodies and textures of sound that embrace the last 50 years of popular music. The tracks are written, recorded and produced entirely in a small home studio by one person, delivered in a classic yet futuristic style.
A native of Newcastle, Co. Down. he name-checks King Gizzard, Flaming Lips, John Lennon and Tame Impala, and is a specialist in creating dense, vibrant melodies and melding them with psych-pop arrangements and free-flowing indie rock harmonies. A visual artists as much as a musical one, Lemonade Shoelace is on a one-man mission to paint some colour back on the world.
“I knew I wanted to get something bold and colourful. Not just visuals but music you have to listen twice to. I love music where every time you listen to it, you hear something else in the song. Interesting music.”
A skilled producer and songwriter, the Irish musician has already been his work vetted by the likes of Yungblud, Denzel Curry, NME, CLASH, Kerrang and more along with support from national radio. Currently working on his debut EP the miasmic world of Lemonade Shoelace is only set to get weirder.
